Brian Epstein Interview-1964



The always-fascinating Brian Epstein, the true Fifth Beatle, the man without whose guidance the group would at best have been a minor European success.

Steven, we thank you IMMENSELY for the kind and true words obout Brian Epstein.

We administer (administrate?) a Facebook page ourselves, in an attempt to convince Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to apologize for their snubbing of Eppy and finally honor him as a non-performer inductee.

The apology we really don't expect, but obviously the induction is well-deserved and long overdue.

Thanks again. After reading so much snarky shite online about him, your tribute was refreshing and heartwarming. ♥

I haven't seen any of the bad stuff about him nor do I see where anyone could doubt his importance to the Beatles and the sixties in general. He was, as we all are, a flawed man but he had a vision and his vision led directly to the Beatles' worldwide success. There is a point where he became a bit superfluous after that but I have long felt if he lived they would have gravitated back to his guidance when they realized it wasn't easy to be creative AND businessmen.

I just "liked" your Facebook page. I recommend other Beatles fans do the same.
