|Sir George Martin could have been Idol mentor|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 07/14/08 7:44 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Legendary Beatles producer Sir George Martin has acknowledged he was once considered as a mentor on American Idol.
George Martin, the host of an upcoming PBS music series On Record: The Soundtrack of Our Lives, told reporters at the summer gathering of the Television Critics Association that he was only too well aware of American Idol, in part because it was spun off from the wildly successful U.K. series, Pop Idol.
"I know American Idol is enormously popular, but it's not my cup of tea," Martin said. "I would never dream of being on it. In spite of the money that's being made. My God, that man (Simon Cowell) is walking around like Croesus. But I'd rather be poor."
