A Brian Epstein Tribute Video made to honor the 41st anniversary of his death, August 27, 1967. Parts of the video are rare images. The background music used is a song written by Paul McCartney called, "Here Today." (2:28 minutes) www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY5qrQXgv1A

I know their hearts are in the right place, but I sure do wish that for every melancholy video, somebody would make a Brian-centric vid or two that was lighthearted, with a happy song or a funny theme!
I am SO sick of "Hide Your Love Away" and all that.
But, since the Inner Circle and the powers-that-be have apparently chosen to perpetuate the pitiful Eppy image, my little blathering will make no difference, will it?
I just can't help thinking that Brian would also be sad if he knew when most people think of him, they feel sad.
Y'know, sadness is appropriate when thinking only of the bad times ~~ however! in real life, our Eppy had every bit as many GOOD times as bad. He was an amusing, funny guy out of the public eye.
"...he had an amazing sense of humour, and when Brian would come into the room with the four Beatles it was Brian who was the star. He would light up the room.
He ... had this infectious smile. He was filled with witticisms and he could be very funny, and when he started to get funny he became outrageously funny. He was such an iconoclast and nothing was sacred to him..." ~ Nat Weiss
I could find similar quotes from Derek Taylor and others.
Okay. Ummm.... Sorry, Yerblues ... good post. Eppylover? ... bad mood.

Unfortunately, there are not many songs written (or even hint) about Brian Epstein or his character, as we all know. It may take the The Fifth Beatle movie and/or this website to educate the masses about his sense of humor and "sunny" personality. Hopefully, this website is gradually succeeding in bringing out his wittiness and enormous intelligence to the public. Until then, we may have to bear with the usual background music used in his tributes. I basically liked looking at the video images. I did not know a whole lot about Brian until I came here.
BTW, no sweat. I realize you may experience highs and lows during the difficult period you are going through. We all go through difficult periods in life hard to adjust. It does take time before things get better.
