ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY 19, 1964: The Beatles kick off first U.S. tour at San Francisco's Cow Palace The Beatles took America by storm during their famous first visit, wowing the millions who watched them during their historic television appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964. But after the first great rush of stateside Beatlemania, the Beatles promptly returned to Europe, leaving their American fans to make do with mere records. By late summer of that same year, however, having put on an unprecedented and still unmatched display of pop-chart dominance during their absence, the Beatles finally returned. On August 19, 1964, more than six months after taking the East Coast by storm, the Fab Four traveled to California to take the stage at the Cow Palace in San Francisco for opening night of their first-ever concert tour of North America. Although in retrospect it would seem a laughable underestimation of their drawing power in America, Beatles' manager Brian Epstein chose venues like the 17,00 ...

Brian Epstein was honored by the UK Heritage Foundation with a "Blue Plaque" on the site that housed the London offices of his NEMS Enterprises company from 1964 until shortly after his death in 1967. At the ceremony, a statement by The Fifth Beatle writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary was read by Vicki Michelle: "Brian Epstein orchestrated and protected the Beatles’ legacy with a passion and persistence unprecedented in the history of rock and roll. Thanks to his efforts, the world was given the Beatles—and pop music was soon elevated into an art form. But totally apart from The Beatles and the business, Brian Epstein’s story filled me with hope and possibility, in much the same way I suspect the Beatles did for him. I was once a misfit kid of Indian origin, running around New York City’s lower east side in the 1990’s, dreaming about writing graphic novels and producing Broadway musicals, concerned that my dreams were impossible, and I too unlikely a person to realize them. Then Brian Epstein’s ...
Tributes to Brian Epstein read out at the celebration lunch yesterday Paul McCartney: I know Brian would have been very proud to think that he had earned a Blue Plaque in the West End of London.

Congratulations, Brian. Love from Paul McCartney. Ringo Starr: He started like we did. He didn't know the game, neither did we, really. We knew how to play, and he tidied us up and moved us on. He ran a record shop in his father's furniture company, heard about us, or heard about them, I wasn't even with them then; he went down to the Cavern and decided to be a manager. And he was very good. Love and peace. Ringo George Martin: Brian Epstein and I were very good friends from the word go, and we liked each other a lot. We sort of ran The Beatles together but he left the music to me and gave me enormous encouragement. The Beatles ...

Called the "Fifth Beatle," Billy Preston has the distinction of being the only musician besides Tony Sheridan to be credited on a Beatles record. An incredibly talented musician who had quite a solo career of his own, Preston (1946-2006) first met the Beatles as a 16-year-old in 1962 while part of Little Richard's touring band, when their manager Brian Epstein organized a Liverpool show which the Fab Four opened. George Harrison invited Preston to play at their Let It Be album sessions in Jan. 1969, where he recorded several tracks with them. John Lennon liked him so much that at one point during the sessions, he proposed that Preston join the group as the Fifth Beatle. Paul McCartney nixed the idea, saying it was bad enough with four. One of the tracks Preston recorded with them was Get Back -- that's him on the organ. He was also with them when they climbed on the London rooftop of the Apple Office Building for a 42-minute show on Jan. 30, 1969 and recorded several songs that ended up on the Let It Be a ...

Since The Beatles were scheduled to leave on a world tour the very next morning, it was too late to cancel the tour. Brian Epstein and George Martin arranged for a temporary drummer to take Ringo's place for the first part of the tour, and the drummer selected was Jimmy Nicol, someone who they knew to be talented but who was unknown enough not to be mistaken as a permanent replacement for Ringo. On the spur of a last-minute phone call from George Martin, Nicol rushed over to EMI Studios, where he and The Beatles ran through six songs from their tour repertoire in a quick rehearsal ("I Want to Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", "I Saw Her Standing There", "This Boy", "Can't Buy Me Love", and "Long Tall Sally"). Just 27 hours later, drummer Jimmy Nicol was performing live with The Beatles in Copenhagen, ...

The Beatles - The Making Of "Abbey Road" "Abbey Road" is the 11th studio album released by the Beatles. It is their last recorded album, although Let It Be was the last album released before the band's dissolution in 1970. Work on Abbey Road began in April 1969, and the album was released on 26 September 1969 in the United Kingdom, and 1 October 1969 in the United States. The album was released amid tensions within the band. It has been viewed by many critics as the Beatles' greatest work and is ranked by several publications as one of the greatest albums of all time. Abbey Road remains their best-selling album. After the near-disastrous sessions for the proposed Get Back album (later released as Let It Be), Paul McCartney suggested to music producer George Martin that the group get together and make an album "the way we used to", free of the conflict that began following the death of Brian Epstein and carrying over to the sessions for the "White Album". Martin agreed, stipulating that he must be allowed ...
Happy Birthday.Billy Hatton. A short interview with the amazing Billy Hatton, former band member of The Fourmost Guitarist/vocalist Brian O'Hara and best friend guitarist/vocalist Joey Bower formed The Two Jays in 1957 and did a six week tour of the Isle of Man. The group changed its name to the Four Jays in September 1959 when bass guitarist/singer Billy Hatton and drummer Brian Redman joined the group. They made their debut at the Cavern Club on 1 March 1961, nearly three weeks before The Beatles. Rhythm guitarist/singer Mike Millward (ex-The Undertakers) joined the Four Jays in November 1961, followed by drummer/singer Dave Lovelady in September 1962. The band changed its name to The Fourmost in June 1962. On 30 June 1963, the group signed a management contract with Brian Epstein. This led to their being auditioned by George Martin and signed to EMI's Parlophone record label.

Do you realize that the Fifth Beatle, Brian Epstein, was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?!
A night of TV watching some really interesting docos. Caught up on the two parter on Brian Epstein (oh gosh I wonder why I recorded that), then one on my hero Jimi Hendrix,then a bit of the Led Zep reunion concert at the 02. Then I come up to my study to learn that Peaches Geldof apparently, according to The Times, died of a heroin overdose. I wonder how this will affect Diana-like national outpouring of grief that accompanied her passing with 95% of the 'mourners' not having the faintest idea what she was actually famous for. I'm saddened and angry. Sad for her little boys and her family left behind, Angry at the waste of such a young life. But you know what? Ultimately it's absolutely none of our business. Bob Hoskins, on the other hand, enthralled us with his craft and left a wonderful body of work that will endure. Life is so precious. I have to remind myself far too often as we trudge through the exhausting daily mire.
wait, was Brian Epstein actually in love with John Lennon

April 30, 1976 -- With Konk Studios in the midst of reconstruction, the Kinks convene at Ray Davies' "house in the country" in Surrey, to begin rehearsing music Ray has written for their next LP. The Celluloid Heroes compilation album, to be released in a couple weeks, will fulfill their RCA contract; their new album, which will eventually be titled Sleepwalker, will be on the Arista label. Ray has some 30 songs ready to be worked on, though the number will be winnowed down in the next few weeks. After a couple of months of developing the songs in rehearsal, they will begin recording in late June. May 1, 1965 -- The Kinks appear at the Granada Cinema, Walthamstow, as the headliners for a package tour whose other acts include the Yardbirds, The Riot Squad, and Goldie and the Gingerbreads. Beatles manager Brian Epstein sends them a telegram that reads: "All the best for what I am sure will prove a very successful tour for you all."

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: April 28, 1964 (Tuesday) Studio 5A/B, Wembley Studios, Wembley Prior rehearsals and recording session accomplished, the TV special Around The Beatles was taped before an audience between 9:00 and 10:15 this evening. The Beatles arrived at the studios at 11:00 am, however, for final rehearsals, and somehow also found the time to record radio interviews for Swedish radio with visiting presenter Klas Burling. What with all of their guests, the Beatles actually participated in only two of the show's main items: their music set and a humorous opening spoof of the Interlude section of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (Act V Scene I), in which John portrayed the beauteous lady "Thisbe", Paul "Pyramus", George "Moonshine" and Ringo "Lion", all attired in costume. Apart from this, John, Paul and George were seen at the very start of the show, miming a trumpet fanfare, and then Ringo followed by hoisting a flag and setting off a cannon ball. Later, as a group, they introduced ...
Tonight’s oldie comes from a group that formed at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. The Cyrkle opened for The Beatles during their last U.S. tour, as both bands were managed by Brian Epstein. It was John Lennon who suggested the unique spelling of the group’s name. “Turn Down Day” was The Cyrkle’s second and final Top 20 hit, peaking at in the U.S. and Canada in 1966. FYI: Singer and lead guitarist Tom Dawes wrote the famous "plop plop fizz fizz" jingle for Alka-Seltzer while singer and rhythm guitarist Don Dannemann wrote the original 7Up “Uncola” song.
So wait, Jewish and *** in the 60's ... did Brian Epstein launch the Beatles despite being basically illegal?
Andrew Loog Oldham info: Andrew Loog Oldham (born 29 January 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.[1] 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.[1] Oldham had previously been business partners with Peter Meaden, first manager of The Who, but they had fallen out. O ...

Didn't Brian Epstein cut a disc of Beatles at HMV Oxford St who advised to go see George Martin?
After The Beatles became famous Robin Boucher & I decided that Charmouth needed t take on the Fab 4. This was a problem as we were only 2. But we knew that when other musicians heard of our plans they would flock to join us. We used to practise in the down floor room of his house by the playing fields. To let others know how good we were we always had the windows open. There was always a chance that Brian Epstein was in the area and had decided to have a brisk walk across the fields to Wootton Fitzpaine hear us performing and would sign us up. Our fallback position was to practice and when we were ready persuade Mr Forsey and Mr Morgan to let us play in the WI hall during the break at the Friday night Bingo. Unfortunately Robin left Charmouth. No Charmouth super group! I decided to go solo. I played on night at the Blue boy Clapton another gig at the Rose and Castle Birdsmoorgate. Whilst busking in the Coach and Horses someone asked me to guest at the new Folk Club at the Shaves Cross Inn. I had made ...

How Beatles manager Brian Epstein made the Rock Hall of Fame - By Randy Lewis
There's been all sorts of noise about various aspects of tonight's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in Brooklyn. But the most rewarding part of the induction of the Class of 2014 is the long-overdue inclusion of Brian Epstein, whose faith and instincts helped in no small measure in making The Beatles the phenomenon they still are today. It's just too bad that Brian couldn't be here today to accept the honor:
Thursday night, later tonight really, we are going to the Barclays Center to attend the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. HBO is shooting it live, airing at a later date. 2014 Class: Cat Stevens, Nirvana, Hall n Oats, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt, E Street Band, and Brian Epstein. We are super excited.

THE LIFE, MUSIC & TIMES OF JULIAN LENNON: The Wikipedia Biography edited and augmented by TBU Managing Editor - Mike Montana. John Charles Julian Lennon came into the world on April 8th in 1963. He is the only child of John Lennon and Cynthia Powell. The Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, was his godfather. Julian was the direct inspiration for three Beatles' songs: "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", "Hey Jude" and "Good Night". Julian Lennon was born in Liverpool. Initially, the fact that John Lennon was married and had a child was concealed from the public, in keeping with the conventional wisdom of the era that female teenage fans would not be as enamoured of married male pop stars. Julian inspired one of his father's most famous songs, by bringing home a painting from his early schooldays. When John asked him what it was called, Julian responded "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds". Following his father's infidelity with Yoko Ono,his parents divorced when he was five. Paul McCartney wrote "Hey Jude" to cons .. ...
I've seen this question asked alot in places. It may vary on who you say. The question is "Who would you say is the 5th Beatle or 5th Beatles?" I would say it is an honourary title to all the people who with the Beatles and behind the scenes with them in their inner circle. That would go to Brian Epstein, George Martin, Mal Evans, Neil Aspinall, Tony Bramwell, Derek Taylor, Alf Bicknell, Billy Preston , Tony Sheridan, Stu Sutcliffe, Alistair Taylor, Tony Barrow, Peter Brown, Klaus Voormann, Eric Clapton, Pete Best, Sam Leach, Allan Williams . Included should be Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty.

Today we had an insightful and amazing interview with a man managed by Brian Epstein, signed to Parlophone records, produced by George Martin whose first three were Lennon-McCartney songs. OK, I'll tell you. Billy J. Kramer. Man did he have some stories to tell!

* Jayhawks founder Olson recalls Bunkhouse debut Posted in Features | Tags: alt-country, Bunkhouse, Charlie Pine, Jayhawks, Mark Olson May 17, 2010 | princep By Chris M. Junior Elvis Presley had Colonel Tom Parker, The Beatles had Brian Epstein and The Jayhawks had Charlie Pine. Even some longtime Jayhawks fans might not know much about Pine, who was the alt-country band’s manager during its early days. Like Parker and Epstein did for Presley and the Fab Four, respectively, Pine played a key role in helping his act build toward a long recording career. For The Jayhawks, the foundation was the Minneapolis band’s Pine-produced, self-titled debut album, released in 1986 on Bunkhouse Records. Only 2,000 vinyl copies of “The Jayhawks” (a.k.a. The Bunkhouse Album) were originally pressed. But on May 18, Lost Highway will release the album on CD for the first time ever, and the CD version will include a booklet with photos of the band from that era as well as a new essay by Jayhawks founder Mark Olson. . ...
// cRYING “Brian Epstein was dead. It was the most shocking, dreadful moment. Paul took Peter Brown’s call. Brian had been found dead in his bed at his house in Chapel Street. He was thirty-two years old. At that point there was no explanation. We were stunned when Paul, ashen faced, repeated what he had been told. It had to be a mistake. Paul and George were in complete shock. I don’t think it could have been worse if they had heard that their own fathers had dropped dead. The unthinkable had happened. Brian had found them, believed in them, molded them, turned them into millionaires, and made them famous the world over. He had looked after them, pandered to their every whim, protected them, guided them, advised them. He was their friend, their enabler, their hero. He was irreplaceable. We knew, in the cold hard light of a Bangor morning, that life would never be the same again. We were outside, just after breakfast, when we heard the news. We had been on our way to Maharishi, who was going to talk ...

Success in show business cant rely on just talent alone ; its having other talented prople recognizing your gifts and helping you along. The Four Marx Brothers for example; benefitted enormously by working with Broadway greats Sam Harris; Irving Berlin and George S. Kauffman in their first big Broadway hit THE COCOANUTS. The Beatles benefitted a great deal from the likes of Brian Epstein ; George Martin and of course Ed Sullivan ; Ford ; Hawks and the Harry Carey; Sr. were invaluable in shaping the John Wayne we all know and love. Good teamwork; successful nuturing of talent; plus being at the right place at the right time will always play an important part.

Hello everyone. I have just watched the Beatles 50th Anniversary Concert which was quite magnificent . The artists that performed the tributes Joe Walsh, Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys performed such great songs of the Beatles era did them proud. Sir Paul and Ringo where awesome and still have what it takes . during an interview televised , Paul and Ringo both spoke to David Letterman explaining what it was like to be a Beatle. How it was liked to be locked up in a hotel room with only the four of them to part of the moment and how the introduction to the Ed Sullivan Show was their official introduction to the American People. Which if truth be known was the start of the British Invasion . One person who was never mentioned throughout the entire show by these two legends was the man who made the Beatles "The Fifth Beatle" if you like, and the man who made everything possible for them to be the legends they are to day . Can anyone tell me who that individual was ? Let me save you the trouble , In short , dea .. ...
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.
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 ...

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 ;-)

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 ...
Beatles flipped of Gator Bowl Let's return to Aug. 20, 1964, and a room at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas. We'd returned to the hotel in between the afternoon and evening concerts. Press guy Derek Taylor arranged for me to come to a room where the guys were hanging out, and for a change, I had some news for them. 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.
ingenious Brian Epstein we were collectively damaged after JFK & then came "4 lads fr/ Liverpool" helped us heal & much more
oh dear Brian it's okay just keep us on the straight and narrow that's all you need.
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 ...
