The APRS has released a statement following the death of Sir George Martin.

It reads: "We are truly saddened at the loss today of our APRS President, Sir George Martin. George was always a dedicated and loyal supporter of the association and his presence at our annual fellowship lunch was always a highlight of the year.

"George was a true legend of our industry. Without his vision the musical landscape of the UK and indeed the world would have been much poorer.

"Not only did George create much of the music of the seminal sixties but also went on to found Air Studios in London and Montserrat. His expertise encouraged us all who worked with him to produce our finest efforts.

"Our industry owes him a great debt of gratitude for enriching all of our lives and enabling of us to work at something we love.

"Our sincere condolences to Judy and all the family, our thoughts are with you."
