Losing the Other George…

I generally live in a hole, insofar as my exposure to the news goes… having three kids at/younger than 4 doesn’t help that.(For instance, I hadn’t heard Nancy Reagan had died until last night, and that happened 6 March.)


One item of news that made it through in a timely fashion was regarding the death of George Martin. Not “RR”, but the George Martin…the man more-or-less behind the Beatles. In Beatles’s terms, he was the other George.

As of this writing, there are only two bands that I will maintain physical copies of their output: Rush, and the Beatles.I’ve always been a Beatles person.Martin’s specific involvement in their music, listed only as “Producer,” contributed to my…fandom seems odd to use, but appreciation? Continued enjoyment? And for that, I can only be grateful.
