Welcome to BrianEpstein.com, 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.

autobiography, A Cellarful of Noise, was finally republished in America after being out
of print for decades.

by leading Beatles historian and authority Martin Lewis,
who is a driving force behind the campaign to restore Epstein's reputation.
