Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime...
But sometimes, you just gotta give the guy the friggin' fish.

Thinking of Brian

Today we remember Brian Epstein, who passed away 44 years ago on this day, August 27, 1967.

Would the Beatles have happened without Brian? He believed in them when no one else did. Dick Rowe of Decca records told Brian that guitar groups were on their way out. Brian told Dick Rowe that the Beatles were going to be bigger than Elvis.


Brian tamed them without changing their sound or who they were. He traded in their leather jackets for suits and ties, and taught them to bow politely to the audience at the end of every song. Imagine that day, telling John Lennon he'd have to clean up his act and bow to the audience, instead of cursing at them. No one could get John Lennon to do anything he didn't want to.

Except Brian.

This image of Brian's grave in Liverpool was taken by our friend Katie Hickox. She says that while some of the cemetery has unfortunately been vandalized and fallen into disrepair, thankfully Brian's grave remains untouched, and has been cleaned up for the visitors who invariably arrive on this day to pay their respects.

It's a crime an accident took Brian from us at such a young age. He was only 32, but he lives on in the hearts of every Beatles fan forever.
