Watch George Martin reminisce about signing The Beatles in this newly shared clip.
The adorable video features the producer discussing his initial meeting with The Fab Four, telling his grand-daughter about his first impressions.
Famously, The Beatles struggled to gain an in-road into the music industry, suffering a number of initial rejections.
But George Martin saw something in the group, and this intimate anecdote reveals much about the producer's relationship with the group.
At one point he says: “I figured if I like them this much other people might too...”
A tender moment, it was unearthed and shared online by his son Giles Martin, who is himself a producer, and extensively involved with The Beatles' legacy.
George Martin passed away in 2016 - much missed, this clip exemplifies the genial, schoolmaster identity so many fans ascribe to his world-changing stint in the studio alongside The Beatles.
Watch the clip below.
I don’t normally share anything personal but this my dad from a while back explaining to my daughter he signed the Beatles. Ordinary people do extraordinary things. Great decisions are made for the simplest reasons. “I figured if I like them this much other people might too” pic.twitter.com/j4bf96b4zS— Giles Martin (@mashupmartin) January 19, 2022
