    Sir George Martin, Beatles producer, dead at 90

    Telegraph:

    Sir George Martin, Beatles' producer - obituary
    Record producer who signed The Beatles and went
    on to help them revolutionise the world of pop music

    ---
    It was to George Martin, then head of Parlophone Records, a subsidiary of EMI, that Brian Epstein turned in 1962 when every other label had rejected the band, and it was Martin who signed the Beatles after meeting them in June of that year.

    In giving them a deal, Martin was going against the conventional wisdom of the early pop business. Up to that point, no group per se had been a success.
