Make Much of Time

I was remiss not to have noted here the death of the great George Martin, who left us, earlier this week, at the age of 90. He was a visionary artist, and by all accounts a gentleman. The Beatles would not have been what they were without him.

Now he is joined in death by Keith Emerson, who, sadly, appears to have taken his own life.

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
  Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
  To-morrow will be dying.

    Did you see the BBC Arena program on George Martin? I found it really interesting and he seemed to have been a delightful human being. You would be in a better place than me to assess his contribution to the Beatles but it must be considerable. And I never knew about Air studios on Montserrat before. The islanders appear rather charming as well.
