R.I.P. So sad to hear of the passing of the Great George Martin


So sad to hear of the passing of the great George Martin

Very Sad, and sincere condolences to his family.

But also … What a glorious innings ! Always always positive, and deeply thoughtful and creative, the man was a gentle giant of popular music.

My first knowledge of him is something that few will probably mention: he produced the Temperance Seven – those wonderful 20s style recordings of “You’re Driving me Crazy”, and the blissful “Pasadena” and many others. I adored that work and still do – a great influence. And related one-off projects like Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren. George obviously had a real magic, even then. When he later became the ‘in house’ producer for the Beatles, history was made – and a fabulous catalogue of work.

I didn’t know him well, but our few conversations were full of light. Massive respects and love.
Bless you George !
