Twitter Reacts to the loss of the Father of Loud, Jim Marshall

Forget the Ides of March; it appears as though April 5 is more deserving of man kind’s inherent fear of death, especially if you happen to be a rock and roll icon.

Blue Oyster Cult has advised audiences for decades, “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” yet, on this day alone, Death has garnered rock legends galore. The Father of Loud and the creator of a stage staple, Jim Marshall, assumed his place among the fallen rock stars of stages past, which include, Bob “The Bear” Hite, singer of Canned Heat, Danny Rapp, Philadelphia born frontman of Danny & the Juniors, Kurt Cobain, the voice behind “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and Cozy Powell, drummer of Whitesnake and Black Sabbath fame.

Musicians and fans alike took to Twitter to share their condolences on yet another April 5 in which “the curtains flew and then He appeared, saying don’t be afraid.”

    The news of Jim Marshall passing is deeply saddening. R & R will never be the same w/out him. But, his amps will live on FOREVER! \,,/,
