    That guy kind of drives me crazy, but that video was pretty good.

    It would have been awesome to be around at that time when Marshall was first getting started, and be a fly on the wall at his shop.

    We have better!
    There's a member here that was actually there, eyewitness to the ground floor.

    If you do a little searching his posts are fascinating. Also a little surprising, Mr. Marshall might have been the face/ name but we have more than him to thank!

    Agreed! We should all be honored to have him here as a Marshall Forum member! It is a very special thing to have a man who was there in the beginning, 1962, to be a member.

    I for one am proud and honored to have him here! We should honor him with some kind of recognition for his contribution to the great amplifier we all love!

    Great idea.

    We are fortunate to be able to hear, from an eyewitness, the true beginning.

    They're very informative. It's more his delivery style. His cadence throws me off, I think he should slow down sometimes. I also wish his videos featured less of his talking head, and more photos or video footage of the subject matter. Not that there weren't a lot of photos in this one, but he should just minimize the talking head. IMO.

    The opposite would have been more surprising to me. Very few great accomplishments are the work of one person. Bill Gates knows this, as do most people who are the face/name of great things. Highly functional teams (and sometimes some highly dysfunctional teams, lol) make great things happen. Of course, it takes a vision.

    Actually, the main issue with his voice is, it's a too monotonous for me. I mean, I'm not one to talk, I probably have one of the most monotonous speaking voices ever, but I'm not making 15-minute videos, either.
