Geoff Emerick, Beatles Sound Engineer, Dies At 72

Geoff Emerick, the sound engineer who helped create the sound of the Beatles, has died after a heart attack, aged 72.

A Grammy award-winner, he worked on some of the Beatles' most influential and experimental records, including Sgt Pepper, Revolver and Abbey Road.

He also worked with Kate Bush, Elvis Costello and Ultravox. Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George, described him as "one of finest and most innovative engineers to have graced a recording studio". "We have all been touched by the sounds he helped create on the greatest music ever recorded," he added.
