Brian Epstein
Brian Samuel Epstein (/ɛpstaɪn/[dubious – discuss]; 19 September 1934 – 27 August 1967) was an English music entrepreneur who managed the Beatles. Epstein first discovered the Beatles in November 1961 during a lunchtime performance at The Cavern Club. He was instantly impressed and saw great potential in the group.[1] Epstein was rejected by nearly all major recording companies in London, until he secured a meeting with George Martin, head of EMI's Parlophone label.

In addition to handling the Beatles' business affairs, Epstein often stepped in to mediate personal disputes within the group
