    Wow. I still have the small version of his book, very, very worn but not worn out. Rode one of the early amps for a while, great tones, but too big for this little kid. I rocked a lotta joints with it, though!! He was an innovator.

    I bought his books and even bought his favorite model Marshall AKA Park 45/50.
    He also introduced lots of us to Ken Fischer and Trainwreck.
    All that before there was much published info on vintage amps and guitar amps in general.

    RIP...
