    Oh dear. His biography is a great read if you want to know about engineering in the pre digital age. My childhood heroes are vanishing.

    Martin was often called the fifth Beatles but no doubt Emerick was the sixth one. Revolver was the first record where I heard about him.

    RIP.

    What a great picture. Sadly none of them is with us anymore. Probably one of the very last pictures of Epstein alive.
