Jan 3rd, 2016 – Happy 90th Birthday Sir George Martin!

The Martin Effect In the island’s tourism heyday Montserrat was the Caribbean cloister of choice for celebs including Paul McCartney, Sting, and The Rolling Stones, all of whom recorded at Air Studios, owned by famed Beatles producer Sir George Martin. Today you can arrange to tour the now-abandoned building in the exclusion zone, where reels of tape and speakers were once visible amid the devastation. And you can stay and dine at Olveston House, Sir George’s home-turned-bed-and-breakfast, where Linda McCartney’s photographs and the now 90-year-old Martin’s gold records adorn the walls. Find even more Martin-related memorabilia at Hilltop Coffee House & Family Center, where the owners have “rescued” signage and assorted objects from Plymouth and the exclusion zone, including the leather stool that was the musicians’ perch during studio sessions.
