RIP Sir George Martin, CBE

Although not Mod-related, but nonetheless a well-deserved mention.

Sir George Martin, CBE who arguably helped produce some of the best British music and comedy over the last 50 - 60 years and will be fondly remembered by yours truly. Your techniques and the gifted qualities you had as a producer and arranger will live on forever as you legacy will never be forgotten.

  • Never could get into the Beatles. Love me do and I saw her standing there was about it for me. No doubting the man's talents though. R.I.P Sir !

  • Didn't George Martin also produce for The Action's singles as well? So it IS kind of mod related. 

    Is there going to be a tribute concert or something to him?

  • Just finishing my book on Brian Epstein tonight, by coincidence. At least Martin outlived him by almost 50 years. The man behind the essential Action records as well, so.... thank you for the Music, Mr M.!

    • Finished reading, not writing, I might ad, haha.

  • The real fifth Beatles! RIP George!
