I know there's a thread dedicated to recent deaths, but I thought Geoff Emerick deserved his own page.
Thoughts go to his friends and family.

Here, There, and Everywhere is such a great read. I credit that book with a lot of my developing interest in the band, which, of course, runs parallel to my developing interest in music. He really was a very imaginative engineer and a huge part of some of the great sound of the back half of their career. RIP Geoff.

I feel very grateful that so many of the people who were involved in one of the great stories of 20th-century popular music either wrote or contributed their time and recollections to books between the 1960s and...well, very recently. One by one they are leaving us. I know some of those books are contentious, but many of them are valuable even so.

Sad news. Thank you for making the albums from Revolver onwards a real treat to listen to with your brilliant engineering. R.I.P. Geoff

Regardless of the accuracy of his memory, he was an actual pioneer in recording history, going way beyond his remit as an engineer. We take many of his ideas for granted now, showing how much can be done with limited means and the power of imagination and improvisation.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe. This has been true for 2016 & 2017 but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I know this in an old page, but since I'm starting to get back on this website I wanted to say a few things in remembrance of Geoff.
A year ago in 2017, I went to a Beatles festival called Abbey Road on the River. One of the guests was none other then Geoff himself, selling copies of his autographed book. I didn't buy the book because I didn't have the money, nor did I have the courage to even say anything to him, but just being in the presence of a 'Beatle person' and being able to look him in the eyes was an amazing experience.
After the festival, I looked up more about him because I was curious. He seemed like such a nice guy, even if his book wasn't the most accurate, and he was a part of Beatles history.
R.I.P. Geoff, you will be forever missed.
