On this day, August 27th, in 1967: Brian Epstein was found dead of an accidental overdose of Carbitral; he was 32.

Today’s soundtrack: The Beatles, baby

Today’s book club: A CELLAR FULL OF NOISE — BE’s autobiography

Today’s unrequited crush: John Lennon

Today’s jerk move: The Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death “being within the direct realm of the physical world, is not important.” They immediately leave.
