Lost another great one today. Sir George Martin, the 'fifth Beatle' dies, aged 90 - BBC News

The real fifth Beatle indeed.

The man was a genius. He filled out and added sophistication to the Beatles music. I look at him as the medium between putting the Beatles art to a more classical and professional presentation. i.e. He knew how to arrange and make them sound their best.

R.I.P. Sir George Martin
He was also a generous and gentle person. He was much loved on the island of Montserrat where he built Air Studios, and he raised a lot of money to provide relief for that island after the Soufriere volcano erupted and destroyed half of the island.
"In the world of commerce and finance it is thought quite remarkable if a man is both clever and honest." -- Demosthenes
