You guys are good...Lennon, Epstein, Mal Evans and Sutcliffe.

Why was Mal's death anything to do with The Beatles success? I thought he was depressed because his wife had left him, or something like that, and someone called the police because he was threatening to kill himself with a rifle. He pointed the rifle at the police when they arrived and he was shot by them. What's that got to do with The Beatles?

Oh come on, that is identified as a myth since long. The injuries that Stu had after that night with that fight, were NOT the cause of his death a few years later.

Thanks for posting that link. This is something I've always wondered about.

I found the article interesting too and I have to admit it was the first I'd seen of this...
Sutcliffe was supposedly kicked in the head in 1960, so it's definitely possible the blow didn't cause his death at all.
But even Lewisohn is still writing as fact, as far as I know...He digs everywhere.

There's a complete chapter on Stuart's death in Eric Krasker's book. Eric is a member on this forum and there's a lot of information on this book in the book section.

I have searched for this in Lewisohn's Chronicle, but couldn't find it. Could you help me out please?

I put Mal in this because, according to his friends and relatives, his life was a mess once the Beatles had no use for him anymore and he plunged into depression.
