From Fifth Beatle screenwriter Vivek J. Tiwary: “This book was incredibly inspirational to me as I begun my research on Brian Epstein, some 20 years ago. An important read.”
From The Fifth Beatle Team: An easy-to-read, fab biography of Brian Epstein written by our dear friend, the late Debbie Geller. We miss you, Debbie.
From The Fifth Beatle Team: Brian Epstein’s “autobiography.” Unfortunately not very revealing, given the circumstances– for example, it was a felony to be homosexual, so Brian doesn’t write much about his personal life. But a necessary read for any Epstein study.
From our friends at Essential Sequential: Learn more about “The Fifth Beatle” graphic novel artist Andrew Robinson… and pick up some of his beautiful original artwork!
From Fifth Beatle screenwriter Vivek J. Tiwary: In “Stone Free”– dedicated to Brian Epstein– Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham looks back at the impresarios who he has “admired, loved, or loathed.” Honest, inspirational, and sassy as only Andrew can be!
From Fifth Beatle screenwriter Vivek J. Tiwary: “Another fascinating and forgotten Beatles story, this one from my friend Jim Berkenstadt. I loved this book! ”
From Fifth Beatle fan Michael Aarons: “The way we geeks think they were meant to be heard.”
From The Fifth Beatle Team: Billy J. Kramer, our dear friend and supporter– who wrote the foreword for The Fifth Beatle – tells his rags to riches story, from his working class childhood in Liverpool to the racy world of international pop music. Managed by Brian Epstein, produced by George Martin, and friend, confidante and colleague of the Beatles, Billy gives an insider’s account of the birth of the Liverpool sound and the British Invasion of the USA.
From The Fifth Beatle Team: Managed by Brian Epstein in the 1960’s, hit artist Billy J. Kramer releases a new album about those halcyon years with the lyrics “Some things always bothered me / I just can’t explain / Why isn’t Brian Epstein in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?”
From The Fifth Beatle Team: Cherished former Vermont Governor Madeleine M. Kunin teams up with Jennifer Baumgardner to tell the inspiring story of American politicians’ growing acceptance of gay marriage.
From Fifth Beatle fan Michael Aarons: “It a book cataloging and archiving every piece of studio equipment, instruments and techniques used to record all their albums. It’s an absolutely beautiful book.”
From Fifth Beatle fan (and former Liverpool local) Chris Anderson: Unique, fascinating and informative, focusing on Liverpool and it’s influence on The Beatles.
From Fifth Beatle screenwriter (and proud daddy) Vivek J. Tiwary: A must-read bedtime story for anyone with kids! All you need is love, that says it all.
From Fifth Beatle fan Bram Nash: “Elvis’ manager Colonel Parker was kinda the anti-Brian.” We agree.
