I’ve long contended that George Martin was the real Fifth Beatle, an honorific bestowed by fans and critics alike. His impact on their music was considerable and it’s about the music, isn’t it? Well, yes and no. It’s also about the mystique, the image, the business, the machinery that transformed the zeitgeist. And that’s where Brian Epstein […]

April 11, 2014, NEW YORK, NY—By Vivek J. Tiwary

Yesterday afternoon, hours before he would induct Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, my friend Peter Asher warned me that his induction speech would be short by necessity. I suspect Peter thought I’d be disappointed that Brian might not get his full due. And yet last night, Peter gave the most lovely, heartfelt, personal, poignant, and informative speech about Brian Epstein that the mainstream public has heard in years, perhaps since Paul McCartney told the BBC “If anyone was ‘The Fifth Beatle’ it was Brian” (and that was in 1999).

Fifty years after the Beatles’ triumphant first visit to the United States, their legacy and impact is still being enjoyed, their great message of love still cycling around the globe and down through the generations.
