George Martin, R. I. P.

NY Daily News: Iconic producer George Martin, who worked on most of the Beatles’ recordings and was one of the people referred to as the "Fifth Beatle," died at age 90 on Tuesday, with Fab Four drummer Ringo Starr sharing the news on Twitter.

Both George Martin and Brian Epstein saw (and heard) something in four working-class Liverpudlians, something they knew had the potential to reach far and wide. You just can't explain that alchemy.

/RIP, George. I'll play "All You Need Is Love" in remembrance.

I wonder how many Game of Thrones fans had a momentary heart attach when they saw his obit.

At the rate he's going, George R. R. Martin will be 90 before he writes another GoT book!
