Last week was the 58th anniversay of the last Buddy Holly show. Today is the 53rd anniversary of the first appearance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. 53 years! It seemed like an awfully long time from February 1959 to February 1964....
George Martin had quite the career! After getting out of the army and then going to the Guildhall School of Music, he got a job at the BBC and then moved on to Parlophone.
In discussing his life you kind of have to focus on the records he helped make. Although he wanted to be the next Rachmaninoff he found himself producing whatever was given him, like this classic (for those of us old enough to remember!)
