Epstein
« on: August 07, 2019, 10:43:38 AM »

I was just talking with a friend who know a lot about The Beatles.


In brief:  I said The Beatles would not have gone anywhere, nor continued as a band, without Brian's efforts.
My friend said that they totally would have succeeded whether they had ever met him.


In no way am I saying either one of us is right or wrong. I just found it interesting that he thought they would have made it without him.

I tend to agree with you, Greg....Brian took a scruffy but talented group of guys, rounded off the unacceptable edges and told the world how great they were. At best, they would have been local stars, but no American conquest.

He never gave up on them.  He pursued every avenue until Parlophone agreed to give them an audition. 
I'm not sure they could have found someone to travel to London consistently looking for someone to give them a chance.
