Not really a celebrity, but Jim Marshall died aged 88 yesterday. Founder of Marshall Amplification.
The inventor of valve crunch, will be toasted & thanked by many a muso today, no doubt.
Need a legends Deaths thread. Vale The "Lord of Loud"
Jim Marshall died again?
Jim Marshall is Penny's brother?
James Charles "Jim" Marshall, OBE (29 July 1923 – 5 April 2012) known as The Father of Loud or The Lord of Loud, was an English businessman and pioneer of guitar amplification.
Lol. Seems there might be someone out there taking the pisss.
Google brings it up on a number of news sites & forums in the past 2 days.
Arseholes, .. or accident?
RIP John Clarke..truly funny man, Death in Brunswick is a classic Aussie film
Vale Dave Sorenson.
The voice of Wal Footrot! Funny guy.
He's a huge loss.
Has never been not funny.
Oh no, not John Clarke. This one hurts.
He was brilliant
Absolute tragedy. This guy was simply superb.R.I.P John Clarke.
Absolutely gutted. He was a genius. Possibly the sharpest Australian comic of all time.
Can't believe it. Surely this is just one of his bits and he turns up somewhere tomorrow cracking gags.
Huge talent.Brilliant wordsmith.So sharp. Never cruel.We won't see another like him.
I'm more gutted by this then all the celeb deaths of the past few years put together. In shock.
Vale John Clarke - comic genious
New Zealander, but I won't hold that against Fred Dagg.
He's claimed as an Aussie.
Can I also suggest that any funeral procession be "about" 100 metres long? He would dig that enormously.
The character he portrayed in The Games is still burned into my brain approaching 20 years later.
