George Martin was essential to the success of The Beatles. Some have argued that without their beloved producer, the Fab Four would have remained a provincial club band, eventually fading into obscurity like so many of their contemporaries. I’d disagree. Such a suggestion implies a frankly elitist view of music — that working class, untrained musicians are incapable of making great work. Martin’s classical training certainly allowed The Beatles greater control over their sound, but his greatest contribution was probably his honesty.

Martin was nothing if not transparent. The Beatles’ success made John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr semi-mythological figures. Martin did his best to cast the Liverpool quartet in a more realistic light. In a 1964 interview, he opened up about his fated first meeting with the band: “The first thing that I heard was a recording they’d made, rather a bad one, and I didn’t do a sort of backwards somersault and hit the ceiling and say, ‘God, this is find of the century’ or anything like that. I just thought they were interesting and thought they had something slightly different and I liked to know something more about them, so I got them in the studio”.
