Martin, 90, died “peacefully at home” Tuesday in England, according to Adam Sharp, the founder of C A Management that represents the music producer.
“Martin worked with countless others over a career that spanned decades, including Peter Sellers, Shirley Bassey, America, Cheap Trick, Jeff Beck and Celine Dion. But his fame, and his influence, rests on the seven years he spent with the Beatles, the most successful group in music history — a group Martin helped propel to the top spot with his musical expertise, tasteful arrangements and willing experimentation.”
For Paul McCartney, Martin was “like a second father to me.”
