How much longer ?
« on: July 13, 2011, 01:18:05 PM »

Probably a daft question but how much longer do you think The Beatles would've lasted if Brian Epstein had not died? Most of their problems seemed to stem after he died and was wondering if they would've got on better without all the added pressure they had if Brian was still their manager?

I Think it would last longer because they didn't have to worry about money and all. Like in a movie i just watched Definitely Maybe
" Well like Lennon and McCartney they were good together, and then they couldn't even be friends." Well i think they had soo many problems to take care of it messed everything up.

A few years more, perhaps, but they definitely wouldn't have stayed together for decades or anything.

Brian was their glue. It wasn't accidentally that they were falling apart as soon as Brian had died. Maybe they could have stuck together a few years longer, but then we might also wonder whether their fame and magic had preserved so well. I guess we'll never know.

I agree with Marshal. I was reading this topic from the start and thinking about the Beatles just grew up and Brian wouldn't stop them. I've read pc's message and saw he thinks the same.

By the way, once upon a time I was a local band's manager. I was 23 and I wasn't so clever as Brian, and I wasn't a queen  ;D

With Paul and John in the band, butting heads, I doubt they would have lasted much longer.

True! I agree they were growing apart. But more importantly, Brian was screwing them (intentionally and un-)and John and Paul were just starting to catch on when Brian passed. So who knows how it would have played out, maybe if he had lived and the Beatles stuck with him, we wouldn't have had I Me Mine  ??? ;D

John always said 'we were finished when Brian died' so maybe they wouldve done things differently and there wouldnt have been the war over Eastman etc

its crazy though, Brian achieved all he wanted so why was he so depressed ?

I think that is precisely why he was depressed. The challenge was gone. I also think that he felt useless going forward. The Beatles were no longer touring and Apple was in the beginning stages of being formed. He saw his role going forward as small to none.

I agree. The real tension started quite out of the blue it seems to me during the White album sessions and quite early on in those sessions before the buisness side of things degenerated into such farce. John was already on course to get it together with Yoko and probably would have brought her into the studio regardless of anything Brian said or did and the others would have resented her being there and John would have felt resentment that they resented Yoko being there. Maybe Paul would have even tried to oust Brian from managing them and get the Eastmans in even if Brian was alive. Things would have been very different but I can't see they'd have gone on much longer just 'cause John would have been so obsessed with Yoko.
