Absolutely gutted to get this news today. George was one of the most gifted pop songwriters and producers that ever lived. Like most true geniuses he was very troubled and I had hoped he would pull out of the latest to live for another era. The second British invasion had an enormous impact on my musical life, to the point where it drove me to London. I met George for the first time at Limelight in 1986. My thoughts go out to Chris Porter, and everyone at SARM from the old days.
George wrote “Careless Whisper” when he was 17. What more is there to say!
George Martin was the greatest record producer who ever lived. He was the most influential and seminal record producer who ever lived. He made the greatest A&R signing in the history of recorded music, and was the steward of the greatest band in the history of popular music. Popular music doesn’t exist as it does today without his direct influence.
To myself and all of my brothers in the MPG, George was the standard bearer of excellence, vision, and risk taking to which we all try to hold ourselves.
I had the enormous privilege and honor of knowing this great man for 18 years. My thought’s go out to Giles, Lady Judy and Family.
The music awards season in London was a welcome break from the production shooting of my financial thriller “London Bridges Falling Down” which wrapped principal photography on site at London Fashion Week. The Producers Guild Awards were the highlight of, and the best night of the year. Gorgeous British actress Laura Bingham, the co-star of my film, was my guest for the evening and she made quite a splash. I got to introduce Laura to much of the leadership of the music industry and even got well wishes from Boy George (the first time we’ve met) who a was a really sweet guy and completely taken in by her. Paul Epworth deservedly won producer of the year again, and we got to see everyone from September Management and XL. Good to see old friends Mick Glossop, Tony Platt, Tommy D and Sue Sillitoe as well. What a night!

Dusty Springfield is the greatest “White Soul” singer that ever lived.
Adele is the greatest singer/true artist of the last 25 years. Her legacy is still building.
I recently told Jonathan Dickens that Adele was Dusty Springfield 2015.
Very soon, once again, we will all be reminded why!

Mike Stone, the producer of Asia, was not only a mentor of mine but the single biggest influence of my music production life. If it wasn’t for Mike and Asia, I simply would not have started making records. Their direct influence drove me to the Town House (Where Mike recorded Asia’s debut)
John Wetton was a virtuoso musician with a sense and understanding of melody and harmony that can’t be taught anywhere. He was a wordsmith with few equals. This with Geoff Downes and Mike, created the sound of the biggest selling album in the US for 1982. An album that changed my life.
John’s legendary baritone was one of the greatest voices in the history of rock music.
It’s been an incredibly bad 12 months from the music Gods.
My thought’s go out to John’s family and particularly to Geoff Downes.
