Jim Marshall, the founder of Marshall Amplifcations and the 'Father of Loud,' passed away on April 5 in an English hospital. He was 88-years-old.

After the death of Marshall, a gigantic outpouring of love came from all corners of the music community. Musicians such as Paul McCartney, Slash, Nikki Sixx and many more. (Read rocker's responses to his death here.) Marshall inspired musicians of all generations to pour their soul into their playing and to turn it up to 11.

Posted on the Marshall amps website, the company shared a long and heartfelt eulogy. "We all feel richer for having known him and are happy in the knowledge that he is now in a much better place which has just got a whole lot louder!"
