Want to hear a good Brian Epstein story?
story will be added just say yes
*Just a nice track to keep you occupied meanwhile
Trixie - ok then
Brian went t New York and dogged Ed Sullivan for weeks until he got permission for a meeting. He said to Mr Sullivan: (reconstruction)
''I want the Beatles on your show''
Sullivan hummed and hahed for awhile and eventually agreed
Epstein ''I only ask one condition Mr Sullivan''
Sullivan ''Sure go ahead'' (the Beatles had hit the billboard No.1 that week)
Epstein ''They can only appear if they're TOP OF THE BILL''
Ed Sullivan (to his credit) eventually agreed...the show got the largest ever US audience at about 70 million.
THAT Ladies and Gentlemen took nerve!
