In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first single, “Love Me Do,” our friends at Abbey Road published a new interview with Sir George Martin, The Beatles’ producer and musical confidant.   Questions came from fans via Twitter and Facebook and, as you might guess, the servers were overwhelmed. Our favorite answer? Sir George was asked how he might celebrate the anniversary: “I might have a good glass of wine tonight.”

Check out the John Lennon EJ-160E to get the tone of not only "Love Me Do" but nearly all of The Beatle's first album, Please Please Me (now on remastered vinyl) and read Sir George's interview here.
