Known as the engineer for the Beatles, one of the greats from Abbey Road, he did so much more, right up until his final days.

It is with sadness that we learned of the passing of engineer Geoff Emerick yesterday, apparently from a heart attack as he was conducting business right up to the end with his manager, William Zabaleta. Emerick was 72.

We will have more tributes in the days and weeks to come. In the meantime, please read Matt Hurwitz's interview with Emerick on his work with the Beatles.

RIP, Geoff. You are one of the greats.
