Post RIP Jim Marshall OBE

Quote:
Jim Marshall. While mourning the Guv’nor though, we also salute a legendary man who led a full and truly remarkable life.

Jim’s ascent into the history books as ‘the Father of Loud’ and the man responsible for ‘the Sound of Rock’ is a true rags-to-riches tale. Cruelly robbed of his youth by tubercular bones, Jim rose to become one of the four forefathers responsible for creating the tools that allowed rock guitar as we know and love it today to be born. The ground breaking quartet also included the late, great trio of Leo Fender, Les Paul and Seth Lover – together with Jim, they truly are the cornerstones of all things rock.

In addition to the creation of the amps chosen by countless guitar heroes and game changing bands, Jim was also an incredibly humble and generous man who, over the past several decades, has quietly donated many millions of pounds to worthy causes.

While the entire Marshall Amplification family mourns Jim’s passing and will miss him tremendously, we all feel richer for having known him and are happy in the knowledge that he is now in a much better place which has just got a whole lot louder!

Rest in Peace & thank you Jim.

Your memory; the music and joy your amps have brought to countless millions for the past five decades; and that world-famous, omnipresent script logo that proudly bears your name will always live on.

An online condolences site will be available shortly which we welcome you to leave your messages on. An announcement will be made when this will be accessible.

That's sad news... RIP.

All the great innovative minds of the past century are leaving this world... Let's hope the new generation can keep it up!

I know, it's such a shame he will miss some of the biggest names in music paying homage to him.

RIP Jim.

Very sad indeed!
There is so much of this man's life to be celebrated too!
The things he's accomplished staggers me, when I think about it.
