Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick interviewed.





Welcome to the world of the Beatles, Geoff Emerick.

Emerick managed to fulfill Lennon's request (he ran the Beatle's voice through a Leslie, an amp with two spinning speakers) on what became "Tomorrow Never Knows." Over the next few years, he was Martin's right-hand man for the majority of Beatles recordings, including "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Abbey Road."

He recalls his adventures with the group -- and his participation in other albums, including Paul McCartney and Wings' "Band on the Run," the Zombies' "Odessey and Oracle" and Elvis Costello and the Attractions' "Imperial Bedroom" -- in a new book, "Here, There and Everywhere," written with music writer Howard Massey (Gotham).
