    VOX supplied all there amps for FOC, good advertising back then which is something that Marshall would never do.

    I've been watching a lot of these lately. The Beatles guitar History is even more fun . Always great to see Beatles appreciation here on the forum , as I think there is an appalling lack of it .

    It is crazy, that Marshall never would really endorse artists like everyone else does .I do know people who have gone to Milton Keynes and got free repairs.....but Im not supposed to talk about it

    Ive heard that The Stones wouldn't use Marshalls because they wouldn't give them the endorsement hookup in the 60's . I don't know if that's true ....but it made Ampeg happy ...

    I heard a story about James Brown's band who were endorsed by VOX, hated them and hid their Ampeg's behind a backline of VOX amps.

    Some fantastic footage there that would rarely make it to mainstream! Very cool to see!
    Thanx 4 Sharon,
