Brian Samuel Epstein (19 September 1934 27 August 1967), was an English music entrepreneur, best known for being the manager of The Beatles until his death in 1967. He had also served as manager for Cilla Black, Gerry & the Pacemakers, Billy J.

Today, in the history of Rock and Roll, February 11th: 1956: For his third appearance on CBS' Dorsey Brothers Stage Show, Elvis Presley is finally permitted to perform "Heartbreak Hotel." 1963: In just under ten hours, the Beatles record all ten tracks for their debut LP, released in England as Please Please Me. John's cold makes the process actually take a bit longer than it should; by the time the band gets to the last song of the session, "Twist and Shout," the hoarseness is noticible. Nevertheless, John nails it in one take. 1964: Fresh from their first appearance on CBS' Ed Sullivan Show, the Beatles leave for Washington, DC in a snow storm in order to give their first US live performance at the Washington Coliseum, with opening acts Tommy Roe, the Caravelles, and the Chiffons. Yet another press conference is given before the show. The performance -- "Roll Over Beethoven," "From Me to You," "I Saw Her Standing There," "This Boy," "All My Loving," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Please Please Me," "Till There ...
MUSIC HISTORY 101 On February 12, 1964, THE BEATLES departed Washington D.C. after having performed their first US concert at the city’s Coliseum upon the night before. They were headed back to NYC, where they’d just headlined the Ed Sullivan Show three nights earlier, but on this evening they were off to headline two shows at the Big Apple’s prestigious Carnegie Hall, a nearly impossible feat at the time for a rock band, especially a foreign one. The show had been arranged by music mogul Sid Bernstein, who unlike many of his posh contemporaries understood the cult of personality and had spent a year kowtowing to the prevailing powers-that-be and bending over backwards to bring the Beatles to the esteemed venue. It held a high-brow image with an elite clientele, and rock-n-roll was considered below its average patrons’ discriminating tastes. Prior to that night, Bill Haley & the Comets held the distinction of being the only rock artist to have graced its stage, an honor not even Elvis and the Colo ...
This group will help to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles beginning their reign as the Kings of Pop Music. The story up to now: New Year's Day of 1962 saw The Beatles travelling to London for an audition with Decca Records, resulting in A&R executive Mike Rowe turning the group down. However, they were allowed to keep a tape copy of their audition, to use elsewhere to try and secure a record deal. (Click this link to download songs from this audition, with the exception of the five tracks already released on Anthology 1). Epstein spent the next few months shopping the group around to any and all of the UK record companies, with no success. By the way, March of 1962 was a fairly slow period for The Beatles. On March 7th, they made their first radio appearance. There is nothing else documented until April 1962. Therefore, I won't be posting much new material until April, where things begin to ramp up fairly rapidly...
OK, I could've written an entire article (and maybe I should) on the other fact that really bugged me about the Beatles special last sunday. That is the fact that there was not nearly lip service paid to two critically important contributors to the career of the beatles...George Martin for giving them a defined sound for their entire career and Brian Epstein who made the entire Beatles thing possible (including his work to get them over to America)... These two people were not part of the Beatles "machine", they were integral to beatles existence period. I'm calling shame on the Grammies for lack of acknowledgement for those people that share equally in the fabric of the legend! And I'm calling shame on Paul and Ringo who had the opportunity to say something and didn't... The other thing I didn't mention in my article "the Night that Didn't Change America" is the lame attention paid to Lennon and Harrison songs. Paul and Ringo did a great job of perpetuating the "I, Me, Mine" attitude without a single gra ...
The Beatles’ wily manager Brian Epstein got that; he’s the one who made sure the band packed matching suits to complement their shaggy mop tops. Ed Sullivan got it too; it’s why he went to great lengths to secure an exclusive booking of the band. It had taken a while, but the folks at EMI America were also catching on; after passing on the band’s first three studio albums, and licensing the fourth, “Introducing … The Beatles,” to the independent Vee-Jay label for distribution.
LONDON – Brian Epstein was known as Mr. 25%, referring to his cut of the Beatles’ gross earnings, and in 1963/4, the period when Beatlemania hit Britain and the U.S., it is estimated that he earned £75 million in today’s money.
It Was Fifty Years Ago Today: After an overnight stop in Washington, DC, The Beatles returned to New York City for two concerts at Carnegie Hall. The train journey from Washington took two hours, but once back in New York their limousine was unable to pass through the waiting crowds. A public holiday held to commemorate Abraham Lincoln's birthday allowed an estimated 10,000 people to turn up to greet them at Penn Station. They were taken to the Plaza Hotel by taxi, and following a quick shower and change of clothes they were smuggled out of the building through the kitchens. The Beatles were scheduled to give two 34-minute concerts at Carnegie Hall, beginning at 7.45pm and 11.15pm. Backstage they were greeted by guests including Shirley Bassey, and were given a gold disc by Swan Records for selling a million copies of She Loves You. Tickets for the concerts had gone on sale at the box office on 27 January, and had completely sold out by the following day. 2,900 people saw each of the two shows, which were ...
Today's Rant: The Beatles, The question that no panel of talking heads are asking is why? Up to that point in pop music history English acts had very little, if any success, in America. At the same time, American acts such as R&B legends as Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters were being worshipped by the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger and Clapton. So why would these lads from Liverpool take the world by storm and particularly American teenagers like me? The short answer is "Rockabilly" music. Almost all early rockers were from the Southern United States, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were from Texas, so other than the acts out of Philly and the East Coast, the founders of early Rock n roll such as Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were very much from the south, and most from the deep south. You can add Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash to that list. The "hillbilly" influence in early rock was very hard to listen to, if you were from Chicago or Detroit, it just sounded stupid an ...

A collection of autographs, including a signed photo of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, will go under the hammer at Wombells auction house, Upper Poppleton, York, on Saturday. Auctioneer and Valuer Matt Harris said: “ We have a large collection of autographs in the sale on Saturday and the pick of them is a framed signed photograph from 1951 of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor, with two supporting letters from The Private Secretary (probably Edward’s), a printed Duke and Duchess of Windsor greetings card and an old Bonhams valuation from December 2000. “We’ve only discovered the private secretary letters and card today while cataloguing as they were tucked inside the frame behind the photograph.” “The remaining autographs in the collection - a large collection of several books and photographs - are mainly 1970s to 1980s variety theatre interest with notable names including David Essex, Freddie Starr, John Inman, Ronnie Barker, The Grumbleweeds etc. Mr Harris said: “We’ve also got two origina ...

February 11, 1964... After their initial, historic appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 9, 1964, the Beatles and their entourage had plans in place to fly to Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, Feb. 11th. This was ahead of their first full concert in America at the Washington Coliseum later that evening, but a heavy fast-moving snowstorm early in the morning of the 11th crippled the New York City-area airports, forcing a last-minute change. It was decided to transport the group via the Pennsylvania Railroad. Beatles lore says the train was named The Congressman, (attributed to 1010 WINS radio DJ "Murray The K"), but PRR did not have a train with that name... i ...
Marketing 101 is a class that was missed by Brian Epstein, as far as the Merch side of it is concerned. The Beatles were to receive only 10% of their merch profits. YIKES ... that stuff sold in mass quantities as fast or faster than the records . Wow . They could have been rich ;-)

~ TBU Question of the Day! Be Sure to check out TBU’s Feature Page for 15 different photos of Today’s Question! The Beatles played two 35-minute shows at Carnegie Hall, at 7:00pm and 9:30pm on February 12th 1964. Capitol Records had planned to record both shows and release a live album. In a letter to Carnegie Hall dated February 3rd, 1964, Capitol agreed to provide letters of permission from Brian Epstein and Sid Bernstein for tape recording the show. They also agreed to pay Carnegie Hall $300 to record the event, and another $300 to use "Recorded at Carnegie Hall" on an album cover. Capitol had already planned the placement of the recording equipment, but at the last minute was prevented from doing so by the American Federation of Musicians union. “Carnegie Hall was terrible,” John Lennon later told author Keith Badman for the book “The Beatles Off The Record.” “The acoustics were terrible and they had all these people sitting on the stage with us. It wasn’t a rock show. It was just a so ...

MUSIC HISTORY 101 On this day in 1964, THE BEATLES departed for a Washington D.C. concert appearance by rail since a flash snowstorm had cancelled many flights. With respect for the boys’ comfort, a special vintage carriage dubbed the “King George” was attached to the Pennsylvania Express train “The Congressman” for their journey, but it was already overflowing with reporters and photographers by the time the Fab Four embarked along with Lennon’s wife Cynthia, band manager Brian Epstein, and famed NYC disc jockey “Murray The K”, a shameless self-promoter (the first person to call himself the “Fifth Beatle”) who’d been hounding them since their arrival four days earlier. They were greeted upon their arrival at the Capitol City’s Union Station by eight inches of fresh snow and approximately 4,000 young fans before being prepped for a yet another press conference. Afterwards, the group visited radio station WWDC, the first American station to air a Beatles tune, and then it was back t ...

February 11, 1965…In London's Caxton Hall Register Office, Ringo Starr married his first wife, Maureen Cox. Beatles manager Brian Epstein was the best man. The couple's parents, George Harrison, and John & Cynthia Lennon also attended. Paul McCartney was on vacation in Tunisia at the time. Ringo and Maureen had their honeymoon in Sussex, England. They had three children before divorcing in 1975.
well you was the brains behind it Brian somehow it suits ya.
Autocorrect can never get Brian right. It's always Brain for some reason
There needs to be a modern Brian Epstein film, told like The Fifth Beatle, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
I never heard this Beatles anecdote before. They really were fab. My station in Miami had advised me that the management of the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., where they would be playing Sept. 11, 1964, stated firmly that the stadium would be segregated, which was standard at some locations in those days. As I entered the room, I told the band's manager, Brian Epstein, and the boys about the Jacksonville concert. Paul got up from the sofa and defiantly said, "We are not going to play there." John was even more blunt. He said, "No f- chance of that happening." Ringo and George agreed. Brian stood in silence in the corner of the room, but he knew very well his Fabs would never relent.
Brian Epstein managed to take us to Washinghton on a special carriage attached to the Pennsylvania Railroad express, the Congressman.
Even though it was mngr Brian Epstein who strategically scheduled U.S. tours, the Boys WANTED to see & entertain their fans.

Guest essay: Brian Epstein, the man who brought the Beatles to America -
Even The Beatles and Brian Epstein had to wait for their luggage at JFK:
Learn to innovate from the Beatles: 1. Put together a good team As the founder of the band, John Lennon was the de facto leader. But he was always receptive to the other’s ideas. “The Beatles were uniquely a four-piece group where all of them had a voice,” Mark Lewisohn says. They also found a likeminded counterpart in manager Brian Epstein, who fought tirelessly to preserve the group’s unique approach, even against skeptical record companies. “No record label wanted to sign The Beatles,” Epstein biographer Vivek Tiwary points out. “Brian was the first to believe.” Read more here:
The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Friday, February 7 through Saturday, February 22, 1964 Right from the moment that their Pan Am flight touched down at John F Kennedy International Airport, the Beatles were subjected to every form of media exposure known to 1964: journalists, photographers, radio stations and TV news crews covered their every single move, many with live reports. Hundreds of people were clamouring, constantly, for their attention if only for a few seconds, in person, by phone, by any means imaginable. In addition to all this, and with the express permission of Brian Epstein and the Beatles, film cameras were documenting the group's first US visit from an exclusive vantage point, inside their entourage. This was a complicated production, with Granada Television, the north of England ITV franchise - chipping in financially, Epstein's NEMS company retaining some form of editiorial control and Albert and David Maysles producing the documentary for their own company "Maysles Films". The Maysles ...
The Beatles' American invasion begins Friday, February 7 1964 (50 years ago) The day The Beatles' American invasion began. The Beatles' Boeing 707, Pan Am flight 101, left London Airport early on the morning of 7 February 1964, bound for New York City. All we knew was that a couple of the records had done well in the States. We believed there was still a huge mountain to climb if The Beatles were really to make it there. At Heathrow there was pandemonium. Thousands of fans had arrived from all over Britain and any ordinary passengers hoping to travel that day had to give up. Screaming, sobbing girls held up 'We Love You, Beatles' banners and hordes of police, linking arms in long chains, held them back. We were ushered into a massive press conference, where journalists, spotting me at the side of the room, demanded a picture of John and me together. To my surpirse John agreed. He was usually careful to keep Julian and me away from publicity, but this time, carried along by the momentum of the whole thing ...
True Story: On one of my U.K. Tours several years ago, my bass player from Manchester, England was a long-time friend of the musicians in the band: 'The Kinks'...very cool guy! I also met some entertainment folks who had been personal & professional friends with 'The 5th Beatle', Mr. Brian Epstein. :)
Today is Saturday, February 1, 2014 Today in Beatles History 1962 - The Beatles played at the Thistle Cafe in West Kirby, Lancs. The club was christened "The Beatles Club" for one night to mark Brian Epstein booking the band. The group never played the venue again. 1967 - The Beatles began sessions for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. They laid down the rhythm track for the title cut. 1968 - John Lennon shipped his Rolls Royce to the U.S. 1993 - Paul McCartney released the album "Off the Ground." 2007 - A limited edition version of Yoko Ono's album "Plastic Ono Band" was released in Japan.
The Beatles' only UK tour of 1965 was also their final one as a group. It began with two shows at the Odeon Cinema in Glasgow. The tour lasted 10 days, and saw The Beatles perform in nine venues across eight cities. Throughout they played a set comprising 11 songs: I Feel Fine, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Act Naturally, Nowhere Man, Baby's In Black, Help!, We Can Work It Out, Yesterday, Day Tripper and I'm Down. Paul McCartney performed Yesterday solo on an electric organ. In their dressing room at Odeon The Beatles also took the time to record a message for Radio Scotland, a new pirate station. Due to bad weather Brian Epstein decided that The Beatles should stay in a hotel in the city centre, rather than the smaller one further out they had been booked to stay in. The was some concern that the location of the new hotel could have proved a security risk, but the group came to no harm.
Andrew Loog Oldham (born January 29, 1944) is an English record producer, talent manager, impresario and author. He was manager and producer of The Rolling Stones from 1963 to 1967, and was noted for his flamboyant style. Oldham became a publicist for British and American musicians and for producer Joe Meek. Among his projects were stints publicizing Bob Dylan on his first UK visit and The Beatles for Brian Epstein in early 1963. In April 1963, a journalist friend recommended that he see a young R&B band called The Rolling Stones. Oldham saw potential in the group being positioned as an "anti-Beatles" - a rougher group compared to the "cuddly moptop" image of the Beatles at that time. Oldham, still a teenager, rapidly acquired a seasoned business partner (Eric Easton) and took over management of the Stones who had been informally represented by Giorgio Gomelsky. Oldham had previously been business partners with Peter Meaden, first manager of The Who, but they had fallen out. Oldham signed recording rights ...

They recorded new vocals for ‘She Loves You’, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ and ‘Can't Buy Me Love’, after EMI's West German branch persuaded Brian Epstein that they would be unable to sell large quantities of records in Germany unless they were recorded in the German language. A translator coached John, Paul ...

Beatles Trivia: The Beatles wanted to record the Revolver album right here in little ol' Memphis at Stax Records to get a soul/blues sound. Brian Epstein reportedly came to Memphis and met with guitarist Steve Cropper of the Stax house band, Booker T. & the MGs, who tried to negotiate a deal. Unfortunately, Stax demanded exorbitant fees for the use of their studio, and the Beatles stayed at Abbey Road. I know some of my Memphis friends know Cropper--please ask him about this and let us know if you learn any more details about it.

Following the success of The Beatles' Christmas Show in December 1963 and early 1964, Brian Epstein decided the group should repeat the trick, this time at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. The 1964 shows at the Hammersmith provided a welcomed Christmas gift to the fans, as well as some time at home after a year of grueling tours. Accompanied by the Yardbirds, Sounds Incorporated, Michael Haslam, and Elkie Brooks with the Mike Cotton Sound, "Another Beatles Christmas Show" opened to a sell-out crowd on Dec. 24, 1964, and continued for a three-week run of two performances per day. The show's producer, Peter Yolland, was understandably upset when he discovered he had only 3 days to rehearse and get the entire production ready for public consumption. I don't th ...

My review of The Fifth Beatle, a tribute to
Brian Epstein was incredibly honest and a little naive, but he entered a world that was totally alien to him - George Martin
In late August of 1964, The Beatles started their first official U.S. tour. The group began at Cow Palace in San Francisco and finished at the Paramount Theatre in New York. On August 28-29 The Beatles played at Forest Hills Stadium in New York and were befriended by Bob Dylan. The two parties were introduced by the writer Al Aronowitz at New York’s Delmonico Hotel.After a brief chat with The Beatles, Bob Dylan asked John, Paul, Ringo, George, and Brian Epstein if they wanted to smoke a joint. Epstein looked apprehensive and said that the band hadn’t tried marijuana for years. Dylan was immediately surprised because he had been under the impression that they smoked weed because of the song I Want to Hold Your Hand. He mistook the lyrics “I can’t hide” with “I get high.”The Beatles were never one to back down from a new experience and agreed. Lennon took the joint and passed it to Ringo whom he called his “royal taster.” Ringo smoked the entire thing, not knowing the tradition of sharing ...

US single release: Hello, Goodbye 9.00am, Monday 27 November 1967 (46 years ago) The Beatles' last US single of 1967 appeared three days after it was issued in the United Kingdom. It was also included on the full-length Magical Mystery Tour album, which was released on the same day in America. Hello, Goodbye was issued as Capitol 2056, with I Am The Walrus as its b-side. It entered the top 40 on 9 December, and went on to spend three weeks at the top. In all the single remained in the top 40 for 10 weeks. Hello, Goodbye - The Beatles' final single of 1967, was their first release after the death of Brian Epstein. It was backed with I Am The Walrus, to the displeasure of John Lennon, who considered his song to be the superior of the two. Lennon later dismissed Hello, Goodbye as "three minutes of contradictions and meaningless juxtapositions". The song had its genesis at Paul McCartney's house in Cavendish Avenue, London. According to Alistair Taylor - Epstein's former personal assistant and later the gener ...

The Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein wanted to sign The D-Men (USA)? Read about the group here:
Nov 26 1967: The promotional film of The Beatles 'Hello, Goodbye' was aired on The Ed Sullivan Show in the US. It was never shown at the time in the UK due to a musician's union ban on miming. The Beatles filmed promotional footage for their forthcoming single Hello, Goodbye at London's Saville Theatre. Without an audience present, they mimed to the song on stage. At the time the theatre was still leased by NEMS Enterprises, despite the recent death of Brian Epstein. Paul McCartney was the director of the three promo clips made, using different costumes for each. For the first The Beatles wore their Sgt Pepper uniforms before a psychedelic backdrop. The clip also had cutaways of the group waving to the camera in their 1963 collarless suits, and some dancing girls wearing Hawaiian costumes in the finale. The second clip had The Beatles in their normal (for 1967, at least) clothes, with the dancing girls again appearing in the finale. The third was made of outtakes from the first two clips, plus footage of ...

The College of Rock and Roll Knowledge It was on Nov. 25, 1969 that John Lennon returned his MBE to the Queen, as an act of protest against the Vietnam war. Lennon's chauffeur Les Anthony returned the insignia of the award to Buckinham Palace in the morning, also delivering handwritten letters to the Queen, prime minister Harold Wilson, and the secretary of the Central Chancery, explaining his actions. The letters were written on notepaper headed Bag Productions, the company Lennon had recently set up with Yoko Ono. Your Majesty, I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against 'Cold Turkey' slipping down the charts. With love. John Lennon of Bag The action was predictably seized on by the media. Lennon gave an interview to David Bellan of BBC Radio Four in which he explained that he had been "mulling it over" for the past two years, and that the My Lai massacre carried out by the US Army in March 1968 had c ...

The Cavern Club to Be Sold at Auction Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club, where the Beatles performed roughly 300 times at the start of their career, is going to the auction block. NME reports that Warner Estate, the owner of the Mathew Street building and the adjacent Cavern Walks Shopping Centre, filed for administration (the British equivalent of bankruptcy) last month and is forced to sell. The auction will be handled by Allsop at the Park Lane Hotel. Opened in 1957, the Cavern Club was modeled after Le Caveau, a Paris jazz club in a cellar, complete with tunnels and arches. From February 1961 to August 1963, the Beatles played an estimated 292 shows at the club. It was where Brian Epstein first saw the group and approached them about becoming their manager.

The Beatles More popular than Jesus FBI targeted John Lennon for arrest, probably at the behest of the Nixon White House. Lennon was supposedly on Nixon's "Enemies List" for his antiwar activity.

1967: Brian Epstein's NEMS Enterprises, who are handling the Monkees' first UK tour, hold a party for the group at London's Speakeasy Club, featuring Beatles John, Paul and George along with their girlfriends/wives. Also in attendance: Dusty Springfield, The Who, Procol Harum, Manfred Mann, Lulu, and Eric Clapton. The events will inspire Monkee Micky Dolenz to write the 1967 UK hit "Randy Scouse Git."
Congratulations to The Sun, Mr Cowell, commercial television and the pop recording industry for succeeding in dumbing-down an entire generation of people. Tonight, amidst all the banal pub-chatter, I had to interfere in a conversation or an entire roomful of people would have believed the *** who tried to tell everyone that Ringo wrote all the songs on Sgt Pepper and Brian Epstein was a great producer.
Beryl was always our favourite female vocalist in Liverpool. When I was drinking with John at the downstairs bar at the Blue I asked him if he could do me a favour and let Beryl have one of their songs. He said she could have a number called ‘Love of the Loved.’ A few days later when we were drinking together again he told me that Brian Epstein had told him off, saying that he was their manager and he would decide who would be given their numbers – and he gave it to Cilla. We’d been in the manager’s office one night at the Majestic Ballroom, Birkenhead, having a drink with the manager, Bill Marsden. At the time Beryl still had her own name Beryl Hogg. We were saying that she should have a different name for the stage. Virginia suggested that we use the surname of the Majestic manager – Marsden. We didn’t realise at the time that people would then assume she was Gerry Marsden’s sister. Virginia also had a special award made for Beryl at the Mersey Beat Awards as the Best Female Singer.
A programme on Cilla next Friday. I wonder if she spins the same fantasy about her discovery. Not only did I give her the name, I got her to audition for Brian Epstein at the Blue Angel, which she never admits, even though I have confirmation from Andrew Loog Oldham, Mal Jefferson and Virginia, who were all witnesses, to back me up. The real story is founf on the feature I did on Cilla for www.sixtiescity.com
Looking at some old issues of Mersey Beat I came across the story of me managing Earl Preston. Actually, I did try not to manage artists due to the work involved in Mersey Beat. Cilla asked me to manage her and I said 'no', but I arranged for Epstein to listen to her at the Blue Angel. Ted Knibbs came into my office with a contract for me to co-manage Billy Kramer with him. I put it in a drawer and said I couldn't do it, but felt that Brian Epstein might be interested and called him, arranging for Ted to see him the next day. Ted later told me that Brian had agreed to the hand-over and would pay Ted £50, but Ted said he never received it. The Coasters refused to sign with Brian because some of them were in full time work or education, so he got a new lead singer for them, Chick Graham. The Remo Four turned down the offer of becoming Billy's backing band, so Brian asked the Dakotas, who initially were unsure. He then said he would arrange for them to make records in their own right, so they jettisoned the ...

50 Years Ago. Paul McCartney is 71 today. 50 years ago, he had a 21st birthday party at his Aunt Ginny's place. Too many Beatlemaniacs would have been at his home. During the party John Lennon savagely beat up Bob Woolers, emcee at the Cavern Night Club. Reportedly Woolers made a whimsical suggestion that Lennon and Beatles manager Brian Epstein had a *** affair. Epstein paid off Wooler to avoid bad publicity.
I first came across the 'Paul is Dead' phenomenon of the Beatles a few months ago, and I thought I'd breeze through it and find it to be BS fairly quickly. nope. I'm certain he was kidnapped August 27, 1966 when he separated himself from the Beatles/entourage to stay the night in Seattle. The rest of the group flew on to LA. Paul was never seen alive again. I think it relates to the blackmailing and proclivities of their manager, Brian Epstein, who committed suicide one year to the day. 'Billy Campbell', (appropriately nicknamed 'Faul' by George) has played the role for almost 50 years, for reasons unclear, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were entwined with an nwo/illuminati agenda. The 'clues' (and especially, the evidence) exist, for those who want to follow. Objective analysis will lead you to the date that I found.
Beatles manager Brian Epstein bought up thousands of copies of Love Me Do, the band's 1st hit single, to bolster record sales & ensure their entry into the charts. Epstein's friend & business associate Joe Flannery, who makes the claims, says: "He [Brian Epstein] went & he bought 10,000 copies of Love Me Do & that was in his store room in Whitechapel, because I'd seen them, they were there, 10,000 copies."
ILLUMINATI ABUSE Ex Chief Constable Julie Spence Thanks Julie" British police ran Operation Arundel which was to grow into Operation Ore and later to Operation Radium, Arundel was a cleanup of the pop music scene, many of those who became early DJs were there to sexually exploit teenagers, in almost every case boys at teen discos and later from care homes. Chris Dennning, Joe Meek, Allan "fluff" Freeman, Jonathan King, Bill Goldsmith, Jimmy Saville, Brian Epstein and other heterophobics were complicit in enticing boys into sex acts and to parties where they were given drinks and drugs then molested, some boys were still at school and some were the androgynous scooter riding teenage lads on motor scooters called Mods, which the DJs called " nancy boys". Websites such as Vigilant Citizen and Illuminati News show how depraved the pop music scene is with Madona, Lady Ga Ga, Marilyn Manson, Boy George etc. Operation Ore explored this sordid interest into new realms including politics, especially Peter Mandelso ...
Can you spot the two problems with this flawed and trendy post going around the internet? Here, I'll help out a bit... There are two problems with this list as I have seen it floating around the internet for the past year. The Beatles and Steve Jobs were not "failures" that rose up and succeeded by any means… That would imply that they were honest and hardworking - to which the others in this category are actually insulted by such an association. The Beatles were mediocre at best in their beginnings and it wasn't until Brian Epstein took it upon himself to take advantage of his parent's business (a record store) and used their money and resources to con the Beatles out of theirs. Now it can't be said the Beatles were "victims" really because on the day they were to get together to meet about a contract (something I see in my business as a laughed at device and the people in Orange County have very little integrity when it comes to riding the coat-tails of inventors and creators of jobs and opportunity. ...
-The Beatles performed. She was spotted by Brian Epstein.
It was John Lennon who persuaded Brian Epstein to let Cilla audition for him.
