George Martin


George Martin Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Martin, like most studio producers of the time, was grossly underpaid, earning about $7,000 a year with no producer's royalty - a standard industry practice - and no Christmas bonus. So, in 1965, he left EMI and, along with three colleagues, established an independent production company called AIR (Associated Independent Recording) - which became one of the most successful studios in the world. Today, although officially retired, George is still the chairman of the AIR board - and it remains one of the world's pre-eminent recording studios.
