Marshall’s impact on popular music is beyond quantifiable, as his amps have provided the backdrop for some of rock’s most legendary performances, and have been the preferred amplifier of some of the most influential artists to play electric music since Marshall founded the company in 1962. Marshall was 88 years old. For more info, click here.
