This week the world mourned the loss of Sir George Martin, the legendary record producer and composer affectionately dubbed “the “Fifth Beatle”. I visited Abbey Road Studios on Saturday to see if there would be much of a turnout of fans following the news of Martin’s passing. Along with flowers and cards, hundreds of well-wishers had written their respects on the wall and gates outside the studios. If I’m honest, it was a heartwarming scene – very little traffic got through that crossing this weekend, I can tell you that for nothing.
Paul McCartney perhaps put it best, writing on his blog on Wednesday, “The world has lost a truly great man who left an indelible mark on my soul and the history of British music.”
