The history of The Beatles has been reviewed thousands of times. A quartet of losers from Liverpool with the dream of conquering girls armed with their guitar and their cloying voices that split the history of music in two.
The fifth Beatle has also been repeatedly talked about, a place of honor that many award to Eric Clapton for his contribution to While My Guitar Gently Wheeps, to keyboardist Billy Preston for having been part of the band’s historic rooftop concert, but without a doubt, manager Brian Epstein earned his name as the Fifth Beatle by working tirelessly behind the scenes to see John, Paul, George and Ringo fulfill their destiny of becoming central figures in popular music history.
Epstein didn’t arrive with the band to impress them in a limo outside The Cavern, he didn’t tell them about the hundreds of artists who were under his wing and already successful here, there and everywhere, simply because it didn’t exist; Brian Epstein didn’t see The Beatles grow up, he grew up with The Beatles.
Epstein was not part of any record label, but he did have a record store inherited from his father. One afternoon, a boy came into his store looking for a record: My Bonnie, by a band he had played in Germany. A confused Epstein breaks the bad news to his client that he didn’t have the drive, but he wanted more information on this mysterious band.
His search led him to The Cavern, where John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best performed nearly 300 times between 1961 and 1963.
