Brian Epstein
Birth: Sep. 19, 1934
Liverpool, England
Death: Aug. 27, 1967
London, England

Music Businessman. He gamed fame and notoriety as the manager of the seminal and popular rock music band "The Beatles". Born in Liverpool, England, he was managing the record department in his father's furniture store when he discovered the Beatles playing only a few streets away in the Cavern Club. A failed Royal Academy of Dramatic Art actor, he used his natural flair to smarten up the Beatles' image to make them more accessible to a larger audience. While criticized now for his lack of business acumen, his marketing skills were extremely successful, and he played a still under-rated part in developing the Beatles for their eventual world-wide audience. The stress of managing the world's first supergroup took its toll, and he withdrew into drink, pills, and violent gay relationships (homosexual behavior was illegal in Britain in the mid-1960s). After several failed suicide attempts, his body was discovered in the bedroom of his Chapel Street apartment, the victim of an accidental overdose of sedatives at the age of 32.
