From the BBC. Sad News.

Record producer Sir George Martin, known as the "fifth Beatle", has died, aged 90.

His family thanked "everyone for their thoughts, prayers and messages of support" after his death at home on Tuesday, his manager said.

Beatles drummer Ringo Starr broke the news on Twitter and led tributes, saying Sir George "will be missed".

Sir George signed The Beatles and produced more than 700 records.

He also worked with artists including Gerry and the Pacemakers, Dame Shirley Bassey and Cilla Black.

Listening to his production history today, or at least what I have of it.

I hadn't realised that apart from the more obvious artists (Beatles, Wings, Solo Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Cilla Black, Scaffold, Billy J Kramer) he worked with (and the obscure British acts that I've never heard) and the spoken word stuff (like the Fringe, Sellers, Milligan TWTWTW) he also worked with:
Jeff Beck (on Wired and Blow By Blow)
Ultravox (on Lament)
The Little River Band (Night Owls)
Kenny Rogers (in 1985)
One Alice Cooper track (Because)
Mahavishnu Orchestra
Cheap Trick

And Rolf Harris
