The Beatles: How Richard Hewson changed their sound


A musician has told how he was paid just £40 for his work turning The Beatles’ The Long and Winding Road into a number one hit.

Richard Hewson, 74, who was born in Norton, Stockton, helped add soaring orchestration to the track in 1969 – much to the annoyance of Paul McCartney.

The producer, who now lives in Washington, West Sussex, went on to work with Diana Ross, Chris Rea and many others.
