Music Businessman. He gained celebrity status 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 underrated part in developing the Beatles for their eventual worldwide audiences. Brian Epstein died in London of acute alcohol and drug intoxication at age 32 in 1967. 2014, he was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame under the Non-Performer category.
