Beatles drummer Ringo Starr tweeted the news on Wednesday, saying "God bless George Martin peace and love to Judy and his family love Ringo and Barbara George will be missed".

A Universal spokesman confirmed Martin's death to The Hollywood Reporter, but the circumstances around his death are not yet clear.

In a music career of more than 60 years, Martin produced 30 number-one hit singles in the UK and a further 23 in the US.

Born in London, he signed the Beatles to their first label contract in 1962 and was involved with each of the group's original albums, earning him the moniker of the "fifth Beatle".

He also worked with stars like Elton John, Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers and Cheap Trick.

Martin's work earned him several accolades including six Grammy awards, the most recent coming in 2007, and two BRIT awards.
