What a thrill to see historian Michael Beschloss in THE NEW YORK TIMES pay fab tribute to Brian Epstein with mention of The Fifth Beatle graphic novel and forthcoming film to boot! This week we also have an appearance by writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary on “Breakfast With The Beatles” radio show and a review from the Netherlands in the wake of Dutch Comic Con, where we celebrated the release of The Fifth Beatle in its Dutch translation.

In a ceremony last year at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the Beatles’ original manager, Brian Epstein, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The honor was well deserved. Epstein’s early oversight of what many consider to be the most popular musical act of the 20th century led some to call him the fifth Beatle. Some of the strategies he used to propel the Beatles to prominence (while also probably costing them a fortune in lost potential revenue) would be ill suited to today’s world of digital streaming, music piracy and YouTube, which makes Epstein a case study in how much music management has changed since the early 1960s.
