Musicians worldwide will mourn the passing of "The Father of Loud". He is a pioneer in guitar amplification technology, recognized as the best in the world by such musical acts as Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Eric Clapton, Guns N' Roses, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, U2, Metallica, and Nirvana. He was also knighted with an OBE for "services to the music industry and to charity".
