It’s not everyday that Sir Paul McCartney plays a tune in honour of a Milton Keynes legend, but the Beatles star has done just that.
Sir Paul released a video this week paying tribute to Jim Marshall, creator of the Marshall amp, who died in the concrete city on 5 April. Jim was the driving force behind Marshall Amplification, which is proudly based in Milton Keynes.
The clip shows Sir Paul playing guitar during a session with his band. In it he says: “This goes to to the family and the friends of Jim Marshall, who passed away recently. The great Jim Marshall, founder of Marshall Amps. Jim made it loud. We wanna thank everybody, we wanna thank all his family, we wanna thank Jim mainly. Man, we love you. Our tribute to you…”
