Alexis Mardas, Beatles techno Guru died at age 74,

Recommended Posts

Magic Alex impressed the technically-challenged John Lennon with a light box, and became a fixture at Apple Corps. The Beatles poured quite a bit of resources into some of his crazy ideas via Apple Electronics... and he was responsible for the rather shoddy initial setup at the Apple Studios - much of which had to be fixed in order to proceed with projects like the Get Back sessions.


Magic Alex was a rather colorful and unique character and definitely part of Beatles lore, but not a particularly impressive one from a technological or innovation standpoint. Still, I'm sorry to hear of his passing. RIP.

I thought that was 'Dr. Robert' ;)



I always liked that song - nice gnarly guitars, great vocal harmonies, interesting arrangement - John described it as a 'throw away'.


I belive the good doctor was responsible for the initiation but they kept it going - must have been top quality.
