 ☼ Happy 82nd Birthday, Brian Epstein (b. 19 September, 1934)  ☼

We all liked him, because he was so obviously genuine. He had a sunshine face, manners and was very sweet, a gentleman. He was much older than us mentally. I held him a little in awe because I’d never met ‘a Brian’ before. - Cynthia Lennon


September 19, 1934: Brian Samuel Epstein is born in Liverpool, the eldest son of Harry and Malka ‘Queenie’ Epstein -  and apparent heir to the family business

I am an elder son - a hallowed position in a Jewish family - and much was to be expected of me. - Brian Epstein, A Cellarful of Noise
