The Man Who Discovered The Beatles

This is the official Website dedicated to celebrating the life and achievements of Beatles manager Brian Epstein, a man whose prescience, taste, vision and passion has left an indelible impact on our planet.

Brian Epstein is the man who discovered the Beatles, and guided them to mega-stardom, making them the most successful musical artists of all time. Without Brian, the Beatles as we came to know them, simply wouldn't have existed.

In 1965, both Paul McCartney and George Harrison, on being awarded their M.B.E.s by the Queen, said "M.B.E. stands for Mr. Brian Epstein."

Brian was, truly, "the fifth Beatle". (Paul McCartney's words, not ours.)

But, regrettably, the man who did so much for the Beatles, and who died tragically in 1967, has become a comparatively forgotten man since his death. Almost a Nowhere Man.

This official website, which was also the first website dedicated to Brian Epstein, was created to honor Epstein and to share all the news and information about the revival of appreciation, and to provide background and context for those who are interested in the man behind the Beatles.

Explore all the pages on this site to learn more about Brian Epstein, and to discover all the news of what's happening to help restore the legacy of this very significant player in the Beatles story!

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Petition

(Posted December 17, 2013)

This website has been the command center for the campaign to have Brian Epstein inducted into the non-performers' section of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Since June, 1998, with combined on-line and hardcopy petitions, this site gathered a total of signatures!

Now, 15 years after the campaign was launched to have Brian Epstein honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it is finally going to happen! It has been announced that Brian Epstein will receive the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame "Ahmet Ertegun Award for Lifetime Achievement" (formerly the Non-Performer award).

Thank you, everyone who signed this petition! YOU helped make it happen!
