I secured them ... a Beatle drink even then (Conversation)
Author: Brian Epstein; Lead vocal: Brian Epstein

I secured them an audition at Decca on New Year's Day, 1962. They came to London and stayed at the Royal Hotel paying 27 shillings a night for bed and breakfest. They were poor and I wan't rich but we all celebrated with Rum, Scotch and Coke which was becoming a Beatle drink even then.


Reading from the autobiography "A Cellarful of Noise", recorded: October 13, 1964 at EMI Studios, London, England
