Beatles engineer dies

Sound engineer Norman Smith who worked with The Beatles and Pink Floyd has died at the age of 85.
Smith recorded The Beatles' Rubber Soul and several Pink Floyd albums during the 1960's.

BBC reports that Smith was actually the one who signed Pink Floyd:
"I can't in all honesty say that the music meant anything at all to me," he later recalled. "In fact, I could barely call it music. A mood creation through sound is the best way that I could describe Floyd."
