Liverpool loses another Beatles landmark - Brian Epstein's NEMS
February 6, 2012

The building located on Whitechapel that housed Brian Epstein's NEMS (North East Music Stores), and also the law offices of Rex Makin who was Brian's neighbor on Queen's Drive and had gave Brian legal advice on the Beatles, is being torn down and will be demolished in phases over the next few weeks.According to a local source familiar with the demolition project, the building was in need of major repairs, and the building office/store layout was poorly designed and unrentable for commercial tenants.NEMS was one of the top grossing record stores in the NorthWest and Epstein utilized his London based record company contacts established thru NEMS to setup auditions for the Beatles in early 1961 with Decca and later with EMI.The Epstein family's NEMS store was located less than a block away from the landmark Mathew Street Cavern Club where Brian Epstein heard the Beatles play for the very first time on November 9, 1961.NEMS played a critical role for Brian who used the upstairs offices to meet privately with the Beatles to discuss managing them and later formed NEMS
