Although this is not a music related forum, I wanna post a thread about a man who defined the sound of rock music like few others did.
Jim Marshall, inventor of the world famous "Marshall" amps passed away Thursday at the age of 88.

Jim Marshall, we salute you!

Well, we spent three days looking for food and water, slept in the car
which was buried up to the frame in mud since we parked in a cow
pasture. Had plenty of cash but no real venue for buying food. Plenty
of drugs for sale and in retrospect I could have bought drugs and
traded them for food. That would have worked. Would I do it again,
Absolutely Tongue

The highlight of the adventure was giving a ride to a hitchhiking
couple who had gotten married at Woodstock. When they got in the
car I asked where they were headed, they said New York City.
New York City was 400 miles out of my way as I was headed back
to Ohio. At 3AM we dropped them off at a nightclub on 42nd street.
When I asked how to get back to Ohio, the groom said drive three
lights down and turn left onto interstate 80.
