About

Following the death of their manager Brian Epstein on August 27, 1967, The Beatles issued the following official statement:

The Beatles would be willing to put money into NEMS if there was any question of a takeover from an outsider. The Beatles will not withdraw their shares from NEMS. Things will go on as before.

They also made it clear that Clive Epstein, Brian’s brother who had just been appointed chairman of NEMS, would not become their personal manager.

No one could possibly replace Brian.

We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
