Jim Marshall, celebrated in music circles for his iconic, attitude-laced images of Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones and other '60s rock luminaries as well as equally revered portraits of Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and myriad folk, country, jazz and blues artists, died Wednesday in New York City. He was 74. Marshall apparently died in his sleep while on a promotional tour for "Match Prints," a new collection of similar shots taken across the decades by Marshall and Timothy White, a longtime devotee who referred to his mentor as "royalty in my line of work."

This was the famed Marshall stack, the amplification gear that has dominated rock stages since its introduction in the early 1960s, bestowing on guitarists the ability to achieve unprecedented volume and controlled distortion. From the Who, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix in the 1960s on through Peter Frampton, Van Halen, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses and Nirvana in succeeding decades, the cursive "Marshall" emblazoned on the speakers has served as an inescapable backdrop signature.

--People noticed when the Marshall came to Orange County. Instead of a drawling "pardner" with six-guns and a badge, this Marshall got its authority from 100 watts and eight 12-inch speakers, and it spoke with a decidedly British accent. We talk here of the English-made Marshall guitar amplifier, the throaty, Harley-like tones which some aficionados describe as "the sound of rock." They first started popping up on local stages around 1968.

Jim Marshall is the definitive "rock" photographer--that is, he was the first photographer to become indelibly associated with the music and its musicians. Marshall moved back to his hometown of San Francisco in the mid-'60s after spending two years in New York photographing musicians and hanging around the Greenwich Village folk scene, where he met Bob Dylan. It was auspicious timing.

The verdict came down swiftly and decisively Friday. The question of how bad is bad was answered by football's highest court, who delivered the message without fumbling or stumbling or forgetting how to spell. Leon Lett will be pleased. "What happened to Leon Lett on Thanksgiving was certainly an interesting blunder," said Joe Horrigan, curator of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
