MY first amp was a Marshall and even though i switched to Hughes & Kettner and Mesa/Boogie since then i still like the sound good Marshall amps
produce (still work best with a Stratocaster in my oppinion)
Besides being the pioneer of guitar amps and loud amps at that, i'm impressed with his life. Diagnosed with tubercular bones and dropping out of high
school due world war 2, he never had a real education, he wasn't really healthy but that didn't matter to him and made something out of his life.
Not only did he create Marshall but he also teached drumming to Mitch Mitchell from Jimmy Hendrix Experience, Mick Underwood who worked a long time
with Ian Gilland and Micky Waller from Steampacket who also worked with Jeff Beck. Quite impressive i might say.
It's a shame that so only few people here have to say something about him
