Beatles Producer George Martin Dead at 90
Sad news indeed, Beatle People.
What a legend, there will never be another one quite like him.
As I am a hack producer with a small studio, Martin was one of my heroes. He could do more with four tracks than the rest of the world can now accomplish with four billion. RIP.
Every record producer in the world right now is staring deep into their own souls and wondering "What would I be doing now if George Martin hadn't been doing what he did then?"
It's a ad day for music indeed, that been said if I can make it to 90 and make 0.1% of the awesome music he produced I'll die a very happy man.
Helped change the sound of popular music.
Certainly a bad year so far losing so many greats in the music world.
Thank you George. God Bless
Another sad day for rock but even more so for us Beatle fans. RIP Sir George
He was a hero of mine as well, but I wouldn't call him a hack. He was actually producing classical music when he met the Beatles. I don't recall who brought them to his attention, but he was not even a fan of popular music. Notice the string arrangement in Eleanor Rigby. That would be his influence. He helped them expand their musical horizons. He was also responsible for ousting Pete Best.
I have always thought George Martin made the Beatles. Not that they weren't talented, but he was a big influence on them and their success. I doubt you mean any disrespect, but hack isn't an appropriate title for him.
Central Texas? Austin? I'm in Fort Worth. My son lives in Austin. I'm down that way a lot.
No, no.....*I* am a hack. George Martin is perhaps the pinnacle of the profession. I will edit my post to clarify.
Oh, okay. Could be my reading comprehension.
I saw the name of the thread and I though you meant George R. R. Martin, in which case there are a lot of GOT fans that would be pissed he didn't finish Winds of Winter.
In his own not so small way, he helped change the world. There was a great documentary on him a few years back, I'm sure PBS will dig it out and show it again.
Mr. Martin was an important piece of the Beatles' success and a masterful producer. I do take issue with some of the tributes going around the web today that essentially claim he "made" the Beatles. He and Brian Epstein were immensely helpful, but the Fabs themselves were the ones who made the Beatles.
I see your point, but I don't agree they could have done it on their own. It was a team effort.
Agreed.... But it was the early sixties. George & Brian made the boys "presentable" as it were to the worldwide audience that they would soon dominate. Yes it was a full team effort to be sure but it is far too easy to vastly underestimate Sir George's impact on the boys success.
RIP to a brilliant musical mind.
