"Happy Belated Birthday Dear Sir George Martin! Words could not do justice to the gratefulness I feel in my heart for you for guiding and implementing the ideas and sounds with the world's most famous rock band.

All the best of everything for you & you family." ~ Helen Marketti, Sandusky, Ohio, USA

"Thank you so much for your contribution and excellence in production and sound engineering. As a child of the 60's, I was priviledged to have listened to such great recordings of the Beatles. Today, I am 46 years old. My son Brinton (12 year old), is a Beatles fanatic. It's nice to know that 34 years later your work still sets the standard for great recordings. Thank you and God Bless you! Happy Birthday." ~ Herman Z. Resto, USA

It was serendipity that brought you and the Fab Four together! And, what you fellas did in such a short span of time was magical! All the other recordings you did (comedic, jazz, movies) were also godd, but it's the Beatles' music that will be remembered for many years! Again, thank you, sir, for all that you did, and a Happy 75th!" ~ Siva Jonnada, Morristown, New Jersey, USA

"Dear Sir George - I didn't see anything wrong with your tie!!!! Wishing you the happiest birthday of your life, and what are you going to do for the next 75 years? Would love to hear some new symphonic work from you. You have a distinctive voice in your orchestration, and of course, it enhanced the work of the Beatles and opened our ears. Music is the most powerful (social) force on earth, (which is why so many governments are afraid of it), and you speak the language everyone can understand. Making people happy, lifting them for a few minutes or hours is a wonderful thing to be able to do. And you helped to bring wonder and the joy of discovery into millions of lives.
