Jim Marshall – The Father of LOUD

Dr. Jim Marshall OBE who founded the British amplification company Marshall, has died at the age of 88. Now there was a man who made a difference fifty years ago when he started the company. It just grew and grew, and got louder and louder.

Sadly we did not manage to film him before he went as he had had a stroke and was in a wheelchair, not really able to speak all that well when we went a filming at the factory. But it is an honour to have met him and shaken his hand – we salute his contributions to music worldwide.
