George Martin, arguably the greatest producer of all-time, has passed away at the age of 90. He is known for landing The Beatles their very first recording contract, along with producing a number of their most noteworthy albums.

Also known as the “Fifth Beatle,” Martin began his relationship with The Beatles in 1962, signing the band to EMI’s Parlophone label before he even met them or seen them perform live. With his guidance The Beatles would soon become worldwide sensations and Martin played an integral role in making that happen.

Due to his input in the band’s musical output, Paul McCartney would later refer to Martin as the “Fifth Beatle.”

Martin’s music production spanned far beyond just The Beatles, having produced records for the likes of Elton John, Cheap Trick and Jeff Beck among others. He also produced two James Bond theme songs and helped Pete Townsend with the production of the live  stage performance of The Who’s Tommy. Not to mention he won 6 Grammy Awards over the span of his career.

His mark on the music industry will forever be engrained in the foundation and his influence lives on in the collection of works he leaves behind. R.I.P. George Martin, dead at age 90.
