Martin is best known for his work with the Beatles, of course. I grew up hearing them on my mother’s jukebox… so in a way, Martin helped shape my ear for music from a very young age. Thanks, George.
I think most people know, though, that Martin had a stellar career and did a ton of other things besides his work with the Beatles (as if that wasn’t enough). More of his story is RIGHT HERE.
A walking lifetime achievement award, the quality and breadth of his work is stunning, his legacy assured. Martin died at 90 years old, survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, and his four children. Full respect.
2016 just keeps on taking the legends.
