The "Guv'nor" Jim Marshall dead at 88

The entirety of the heavy music world will be saddened today to hear of the death of 'The Father of Loud' Jim Marshall. The man who butchered a Fender Bassman and turned it into an obnoxiously loud piece of kit has undoubtedly had an enormous impact on the guitar world (and he himself was a drummer!) and the music world in general. Even after 50 years the Marshall logo is still the icon of rock. You'll be missed by many Jim Marshall.

Born Again Nihilist, 2012.
