Description:
"For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of Kings."

This quote is courtesy of Shakespeare's Richard II, Act 3, Scene 2. Pretrial, what brings such thoughts to mind? September 18th, 1970 and the death of a legend. If you are astute, then naturally you know this date and if you were alive, you know where you were when you heard the news and you'll always remember the "Death of Kings." Just as you did on August 16th, 1977.

"Kings," my friends. More than human, immortality yet not achieved but realized. If you know these mile markers, then you are who I want to speak to. One date references the King of Rock-n-Roll and the other? Well, let's just say he was the King of all guitarists. You see him all the time as you stroll down the aisles of any drug store around the world. Like the King said, "So castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually," and so does life, but not that of legends.

Would we really know who Jim Marshall was without the "Immortal One," who singlehandedly put Marshall on the map? I know, I'm aware of Pete, but really, just think- the "Call of Kings" was born in Seattle.

"Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown," also written by Shakespeare.

The weight of being an immortal must be tremendous and our hero, like Icarus, flew too close to the sun and fell at his own hand. Classic Shakespearean ending. As to this Marshall that brought these thoughts to mind? Well, except for a cord change and a few caps, she's all there and with the very last of the laydown transformers intact. Plexi tone people, without the excessive price tag.

  • Well, they put him away in Seattle
  • Six feet beneath the clay
  • Everybody was crying
  • Everybody said it was a plain gray day

  • Me I went to the liquor store
  • And I bought another bottle of wine and another bottle of gin
  • I played his records all night
  • And I got drunk all over again

    Altered lyrics by Philip Lynott, the song, "King's Call" and both of the artists could easily be referenced in that song. We all dream of being immortal but once again, "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown." Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens and the wind cries Mary...
