    Strait from the official website:

    Marshall Amps

    No denying that he was the father of modern tone! R.I.P Jim.:wave:

    A sad day for all electric guitarists. Rather than a memorial moment of silence, we guitarists should get it together and have a memorial moment of cranking it up.

    RIP JCM.

    Indeed. Whether or not you like Marshall is almost irrelevant, he obviously allowed many artists to create their art. Sad day. If you're a Nirvana and/or Alice In Chains fans than April 5th just became one of the worst days of the year!

    Yep! If my wife didn't have to be up for work in a couple of hours, I'd be upstairs cranking my Super Lead Combo right now, in Memoriam.:cool:

    A true legend - not least for having been able to turn Milton Keynes into a site of pilgrimage.

    Same here. Tomorrow afternoon I'll probably bring out the Jubilee and record a "Marshall Memoriam" YouTube video!
