Weird Brian Epstein photo.

We all know that Brian Epstein was instrumental in The Beatles’ success. He was the business mastermind that was able to help shape their career and likeness into a product for the masses.

//img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2007/08_01/EpsteinG0508_468373.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

He was a manager for several other groups in the music industry, and a successful man. Listed on his biography at Billboard.com, though, is Brian with a picture of Eric Clapton’s supergroup Cream. Doesn’t that seem a little odd to you? You’d think they would post a Beatle photo there. Weird, but at least it’s a cool picture.

I know NEMS signed Cream, but you’d think they’d post a Beatle pic there instead. Strange choice.

  1. Odd, yes. But then again the picture posted here for this entry is the Beatles not with Brian but with George Martin so……….

  2. I guess that makes THIS a weird Brian Epstein picture too! Isn’t that George Martin in this photo?

  3. If you’re talking about the photo on the Billboard website ~ yes, that is Brian to the right of the boys. On the left is the legendary Ahmet Ertegün ~

    Here Brian is sporting the short-lived February 1967 "look" that I’ve always called "The Prince of Total Grooviness." LOL

    You can find a very few more pics of him (or I can show them to you) in which he’s talking to Monkee Micky Dolenz, and in clown makeup/costume for Georgie Fame’s masquerade party.

    Mike and Nick ~ I fail to see who you think is George Martin! The photo at the top of this post is indeed Brian, on tour with the boys. George Martin never accompanied them on tour; his only (and invaluable) contribution was to the music. Brian took care of everything else. He kept ’em together for years ~ otherwise they probably would have broken up much sooner. He just couldn’t keep himself together.😦

    The Beatles were much, much more than JUST their music, y’know.

  4. Oh dear. Apparently the photo link is blocked. Well, you can find the picture of Brian with the strange hairstyle on my Flickr,

    Sorry about that.

  5. Eppy, the pic has been changed since I posted. That’s not the picture that was up when I posted on 5/25. It was then indeed a picture of the boys with George Martin. This new one is obviously Brian of course.

  6. Okay, sorry, LOL ~ the first time I noticed that Billboard page was when another site linked to it, arsking “…and what’s with that hair?”

    Confidentially, I think Bri was worried about his hairline receding… I’ve got a few pics that look like… well, if it’s not some kind of hairpiece, I’d be very, very surprised.

    His male relatives seem to have all gone bald in their 30’s ~ a fact that must have struck a bit of fear into his sweet appearance-vain heart!🙂
