R.I.P. Sir George Martin

Post by AlexeiY » Wed Mar 09, 2016 11:43 am

I'm not sure where to put this, but this sub forum seemed to fit the topic......

Sir George Martin has passed away; he was 90 years old.
He is a legend in music production and was also a fine musician in his own right. An amazing body of work, especially when one considers what tools were available in his era.
Rest in Peace, Sir George and many, many thanks for the music.

Further to Sir George Martin's passing, I ran across this video on YouTube and thought that I'd post it here for the community of musicians/recorders/producers who peruse these posts....

He certainly was the innovator of many of the recording and production techniques in use today. "Necessity is the mother of invention" is true in the case of GM's and the Fab Four's relationship. The Beatles brought the necessity and GM invented the way to bring it about.

The Beatles ushered in a wonderful time in music and Sir George was that usher. We'll not see anything like it again in our life times, I would guess.
