Legendary producer Sir George Martin has passed away aged 90. Commonly referred to as the “fifth Beatle”, he signed the fab four to Parlophone after other labels had turned them down. He produced all but one of their albums, played piano on a number of tracks and constantly pushed them to be as innovative as possible on albums such as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The most famous and most successful music producer in history, he has also worked with Cilla Black, Elton John and Jeff Beck and has produced two Bond themes. Few people have ever contributed so much to our culture and yet not be in the limelight. His work will live on as the lasting legacy of a great man.
