UPDATE: We have just been informed about the demise of the legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the mastermind who was responsible for bringing The Beatles into Abbey Road Studios back in 1962. It really saddens us to know that he is no longer with us while his legacy and music will live on forever and ever. We wish and pray for strength and harmony for his family and friends. Here is a video interview of Sir George Martin done by BBC One back in 1998 where he shares his life experiences and his work on the last album at the Abbey Road Studios after working in the recording business for 46 years.
