Beatles fans. George Martin has died at age 90. The news hit me surprisingly hard this morning. Was anybody else deeply saddened?

Update: I mean...I knew it was coming some day, I just wasn't expecting to see it on the news this morning. To me it feels as though another Beatle has died.

RIP Sir George Martin. You will be missed.
Update 2: I didn't become truly aware of The Beatles until I was either 6 or 7 in 1968. They quickly became my favorite group. For someone like me, who grew up with The Beatles, George Martin's passing feels like the end of an era.
