Sir George Martin, who was well known as the Fifth Beatle and signed the famed band when no one else would, has passed away at the age of 90.
Beatle Ringo Starr revealed the tragic news on Facebook, writing, “God bless George Martin peace and love to Judy and his family love Ringo and Barbara George will be missed xxx.”
Paul McCartney just took to his Facebook to write a touching note about his time spent with George.
“I’m so sad to hear the news of the passing of dear George Martin. I have so many wonderful memories of this great man that will be with me forever. He was a true gentleman and like a second father to me. He guided the career of The Beatles with such skill and good humour that he became a true friend to me and my family. If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George. From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know,” Paul wrote.

After taking to social media and writing, “I don’t control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left,” the 26-year-old rapper told Jimmy, “I wish I woulda knew he was outside. I woulda went out there with the mic, brought him in, perform ‘Rack City’ with me.”
“Tweet the fire marshal, don’t tweet me,” he added, as he had been getting bombarded with social media messages over the incident.
“I have a show coming up, February 26th at the Nokia Theatre. So, Paul, if you’re watching this, I would love for you to come. I’ll personally walk you in!” Tyga concluded. Watch the video below…

“I’m very excited that the holiday’s coming up. A little bit conscious of the fact that I’m going to over-eat and over-drink… probably. But that’s ok,” Paul wrote on his official website. “I’m looking forward to being with the family. Spending a lot of time with the folks. Just putting my feet up, watching a bit of telly, and watching the kids – particularly the younger ones, they’re an entertainment in themselves!”
“I send my best wishes to everyone over the holidays,” Paul added. “Hope they have a nice happy, peaceful time with lots of lovely pressies!”
