  1. This week we honor not a dead musician, but a dead British music-store owner.  Well, OK, he was a musician, but he was a drummer who gave lessons in his shop.  And he liked to tinker with electronics.  Jim Marshall died this week at age 88.

    He didn’t really invent the amplifier.  His first creation was an exact knock-off of the circuit of a tweed Fender Bassman which was invented, or course, by Leo Fender.  What Jim Marshall did do for rock ‘n roll was he made it LOUD.

    Countless musicians used his amplifiers, from Jimi Hendrix to Eddie Van Halen to lots of kids today.

    I never had the good fortune to own a Marshall.  I think mainly because I didn’t want to lug around a stack or a half-stack.  I’ve always been a Fender guy.  I have a handful of them: a 1957 Tweed Champ, a little blackface Princeton Reverb that’s my favorite, a Deluxe Reverb, a pre-CBS Vibrolux Reverb, and a blackface Super Reverb.  I had a Twin, but I sold it because it was too loud to turn up to 10.  But never a Marshall.

    I did run across one used back around 1979 or so, a 45-watt Bluesbreaker combo like the one Clapton used on the John Mayall “Beano” album.  However, I had responsibilities.  I had just met Cheryl was helping to raise her daughter at the time and didn’t want to plunk down the $350 asking price.  It would be worth a fortune today.

    Jim Marshall’s place in Rock ‘n Roll history is secure.

  2. If you don’t recognize the names, these are some of the best nordic skiers in the world. After the regular season ends, they do this crazy thing called Nordix, the nordic version of skicross.
