Sir George Martin
I appreciated these thoughtful tributes from fantastic fellow bloggers:
There have been/will be/frankly ought to be many tributes to Sir George Martin arriving this week.
For me, three things have stood out from today:
1. By all accounts, he was kind & generous. I like to believe the true greats, in any field, always are.
2. That synergistic, unbelievably creative period with The Beatles will never be replicated elsewhere. It’s wonderful how neither he nor The Beatles had a ‘sound,’ their collaborative work was just too diverse to be categorized. I am forever grateful to George for producing, arranging, and performing on some of my all-time favourite records.
3. On any given day, I’d list Rocky Raccoon and In My Life as my preferred Beatle tracks. His honky-tonk piano on the former and harpsichord on the latter are perfection.
Rest in Peace.
