Умер продюсер альбомов IRON MAIDEN и DEEP PURPLE

Легендарный британский продюсер Мартин Бёрч, известный по работе над альбомами DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW, FLEETWOOD MAC, WHITESNAKE, BLACK SABBATH, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT и IRON MAIDEN, скончался в возрасте 71 года. Эту новость подтвердил David Coverdale в Твиттере (см. ниже). Его карьера началась в роли звукоинженера на записях Jeff'a Beck'a, FLEETWOOD MAC и DEEP PURPLE. В 1981 году он начал сотрудничество с IRON MAIDEN, выступив продюсером первых девяти альбомов, начиная с "Iron Maiden" и заканчивая "Fear Of The Dark". Он также много работал над связанными с DEEP PURPLE проектами (RAINBOW, PAICE ASHTON LORD, WHITESNAKE, Roger Glover, Jon Lord). Песня "Hard Lovin' Man" из альбома DEEP PURPLE "Deep Purple In Rock" посвящена ему. Он отошёл от дел в 1992 году после завершения работы над альбомом IRON MAIDEN "Fear Of The Dark".

So shocked to hear the sad news of Martin Birch’s passing.


Martin was a lovely guy and a great producer - he produced Heaven and Hell and The Mob Rules for Sabbath. He will be deeply missed and my thoughts go out to his family. R.I.P.
