George Martin 1926 - 2016

George Martin dies aged 90.

We were sad to learn today that the legendary George Martin, producer of The Beatles, has died. His influence on popular music has been so great that it is unlikely we shall see another like him. 

Despite beginning his career as an oboist, the classically-trained producer never regretted making his name in the mass market. "Rock and roll has the same function as classical music," he once said. "To make sounds that are appealing to a mass of people and are of some worth."

Höfner send their love to his family.
