Its a real dirty business and I have not heard any manager being honest to the groups they represented to this day.

Epstein was a 27 year old record store owner when he became their manager. It's not like he was your average seasoned record business executive.

Yep especially when you see how the contracts were drawn up which in my opinion screwed the rest of the fab 4 of a lot of money.  Epstein was no dummy, and quite a schrewed fella.

So easy to say a posteriori.

If you remember that lump you felt in your throat and that fire you felt in your head the first time you heard The Beatles-- and something told you that, musically, this is IT!-- please come join us to help salute the man who pushed The Beatles' dream along. We are campaigning for the induction of Mr. Brian Epstein into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Here is the location of our FB site:

From Bill Harry:  I arranged for Brian to visit the Cavern and see the Beatles for the first time. He was to say "I hadn't seen the Beatles on any stage. They smoked as they played, they ate, talked and pretended to hit each other. They turned their backs on the audience and shouted at them and they laughed at private jokes." To me, that was the Beatles, it was a lot of fun, they were anarchic on stage. If they'd have kept on like that there wouldn't have been a Rolling Stones and a wrongly perceived preference by many youngsters later on that they loved the anarchic Stones in contract to the loveable moptop Beatles. Brian was right for the time, they wouldn't have been accepted by the establishment that ran the media - TV, radio, press as they were and it was only after they had been successful that the Rolling Stones were able to be manufactured by Andrew Loog Oldham.
