I’ve long contended that George Martin was the real Fifth Beatle, an honorific bestowed by fans and critics alike. His impact on their music was considerable and it’s about the music, isn’t it? Well, yes and no. It’s also about the mystique, the image, the business, the machinery that transformed the zeitgeist. And that’s where Brian Epstein […]
