~ From Page 296 ~

Brian Epstein was in the bath with his door open when Paul wandered in.

"I had a camera 'round my neck, so I looked like a guy pestering people for photos, and I had a little card I was flashing. It was one I had been given by Wesley Rose of Acuff and Rose, the music publishers, and I was impressed by it because it was see-through red plastic. So I pulled this out and said, 'Paresi, paresi?'

Brian said, 'Yes, can I help you?'

I said, 'Paresi? Mr Epsteini? Photo?'

He said, 'No, no, no, not now. Look can't you see I'm in the --'

'No, no, no, Brian, can't you tell it's me?'
Freaked him out."

...What really gets me is Brian's reaction to some unknown man with a camera walking into the bathroom while he was sitting naked in the tub:
'Yes, can I help you?'
