Sir George Henry Martin CBE the English record producer, arranger, composer, conductor, audio engineer and musician died aged 90 on the 8th of March.

“It’s going to be hard to imagine a world of music without George in it. He was a lovely man who gave so much of his talent and of himself. I am proud to have been his friend and grateful to have so many happy memories of him. My thoughts are with Lady Judy and Giles at this time.” – MK
