    when the shop moved across the road along from the cafe was when i thought the Marshall amps started appearing built by the guys that used to do the electrical repairs on our gear basically im sure someone here can confirm that or not and initially were small sized gear and cabinets

    I met him back in the early 90's. he was at my local guitar shop for a meet and greet. I had a couple of the backs of my super lead amps signed. it was lighter and easier than carrying the entire amp. and also got a signed marshall brochure. i wish i had brought a camera to capture the moment as proof of authenticity of the signing of the amp backs. oh well.

    I met him at the NAMM show. I believe it was 1994. Was friendly and signed a Marshall catalog.

    Back in the days, when the Musikmesse Frankfurt was still a thing (90s and 2000s), I met him there twice at the Marshall booth. I remember them having a large booth with a sound-proof room where a live band was demoing Marshall amps in front of up to 50 people or so. The drummer was Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden.

    Those were the days... :band:

    Thank you Ken for sharing that link! I'd love to read more. So cool to separate the truth from the myths.

    Thanks again,
    Gene
