5th Beatle Dead @ 90
« on: March 09, 2016, 08:12:52 PM »

Record producer Sir George Martin, known as the "fifth Beatle", has died, aged 90.
His family thanked "everyone for their thoughts, prayers and messages of support" after his death at home on Tuesday, his manager said.
Beatles drummer Ringo Starr broke the news on Twitter and led tributes, saying Sir George "will be missed".
Sir George signed The Beatles and produced more than 700 records.
He also worked with artists including Gerry and the Pacemakers, Dame Shirley Bassey and Cilla Black.

A carpenter's son from Holloway in north London, Sir George helped The Beatles achieve global success as the head of the Parlophone record label after hearing their demo tape in 1962.
He took them from their mop-top pop recordings of the early 1960s to the psychedelia of Sergeant Pepper.


I didn't even know of him  :(

Apparently he was instrumental in introducing orchestral backing for their songs.

I'll never forget when I first heard Penny Lane.  The trumpet; wonderful.

He was a driving force in their music. He went deaf in later life. So sad RIP.
