To paraphrase journalist Katie Hickox ~ if Brian Epstein had lived, he would now be Sir Brian Epstein.
However, he has been dead now over 40 years, and is still sadly under-appreciated. No posthumous MBE, no blue plaques to mark his childhood home in Liverpool or last home in Belgravia/London, and no honor whatsoever at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (located in Ohio) ~ I mean, shouldn't Brian Epstein have been the FIRST to be inducted in the non-performer category? I've never even heard of most of the ones they have honored. It's disgraceful.
Saddest of all, his own Beatles never performed a Concert For Eppy.
