This has to be the saddest news ever. Rest in peace Jim, with the volume up to 11.

I'm going to name drop on this one - I found out from Slash (his official Twitter feed) - the BBC haven't got the story yet.

Yes, very sad news again. One of the fathers of the modern guitar or rock guitar. Surely he is responsible of the tone of many, many guitar players and sounds that we have listened every day.

As it can be read in the link: Rest in peace and thank you, Jim.

Wow. Sad news indeed. Marshall made a very big impact on music.

Teamwork- A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.
