Today (Jan. 3) would have been George Martin‘s 91st birthday. The renowned Beatles producer earned virtually every music-related honor in his lifetime including six Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to name a few.

The man who was often referred to as the “Fifth Beatle” was born on January 3, 1926 in London. He received Knighthood from HRH Queen Elizabeth II in 1996. He died on March 8, 2016 at his home. The cause of death was never disclosed.
