(Classic Rock) Eighteen big-name stars were amongst those who assembled at London's Wembley Arena to mark the 50th anniversary of Marshall Amps on Saturday.

The even, which also commemorated the life of founder Jim Marshall, was hosted by comedian Al Murray and Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain.

Guest musicians included Andy Fraser, Bully Duffy, Dorey Taylor, Doug Aldrich, Glenn Hughes, Joe Satriani, Kerry King, Mike Portnoy, Tim Ripper Owens, Yngwie Malmsteen and Zakk Wylde. Between them they performed a 28-song set of covers, culminating in a mass jam of Deep Purple Classic Smoke on the Water. Marshall died in April aged 88.
