George Martin, the producer who guided the Beatles to astounding heights, has died, his manager says. He was 90.
Adam Sharp of CA Management says Martin’s family “would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and messages of support.”
Confirmation of Martin’s death came after British Prime Minister David Cameron hailed Martin “a giant of music” and Ringo Starr had tweeted that “George will be missed.”
Starr also tweeted a picture of the Beatles and Martin and said: “Thank you for all your love and kindness George peace and love.”
Martin produced and arranged many of the Beatles’ greatest recordings from “Love Me Do” through “Abbey Road.”
