It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Sir George Martin aged 90.
Often referred to as 'the fifth member of the Beatles' Sir George is credited as having a significant hand in the sound they created.
Writing the news on Twitter Ringo Starr said "God bless George Martin peace and love to Judy and his family love Ringo and Barbara George will be missed."
Sir George signed the Beatles and in a career spanning over 5 decades produced more than 700 records. He worked with artists such as Shirley Bassey and Gerry and the Pacemakers.
