    'Fear Of The Dark' was one of his best productions I dare say and some bands could use his skills today. The unfortunate thing is, it's much different climate now where they'd demand him to compress/limit an album as much as he can and make it competitive with other modern albums. Which is I guess one of the main reasons he left the biz....

    Martin Birch retired because he now prefers playing Golf to making records!

    Perhaps Birch got out of the business just in time. He doesn't have to hear his mixing board magic get ruined by heavy compression.

    Same reason as John Deacon, then.

    If you were Martin Birch, wouldn't *You* retire? I know I probably would.:D
