George Martin, the producer for the Beatles passed away at the age of 90. He was also the producer for artists like Celine Dion, Sting, Elton John and more. The London, England native worked for Parlophone Records in 1950, then eventually worked his way to A&R manager at the label. He took a chance with the Beatles in 1962, when he met The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein. Turned out to be the best decision. Martin was dubbed the “Fifth Beatle” because of his influence on the group.
Although I don’t know a great deal of the late producer, I did however, know quite a few of his songs. A Beatles song that I really like is Eleanor Rigby, which is well written. Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” is a beautiful tribute to the late Princess Diana. The Reason by Celine Dion is also incredible.
His impact on the music world won’t be forgotten. George Martin leaves behind an amazing legacy.
