Brian Epstein: Rare Footage From 1966

I love how Eppy's squinting at George ~
as if he's relaying telepathic messages ~

Under the cut is a YouTubed Beatle vid from 1966 ~
the year we saw 'em in person,
from a distance and in back of 'em.
(We had a great view of Starkey butt ~ but I digress...)



My point is:
Go to 5:28 for approx. 5 seconds of Brianage,
previously unseen by the eppylover (screencaps below).

There were some very cute amused Eppy-expressions (Eps-pressions?), but unfortunately the screen showed only half his face during those microseconds ~ because (of course and as always), the media attention was completely on the Beatles ~ in this case, George.

So very disappointing to the eppylover. However, she resigns herself with a sigh ~ because that is what Brian wanted ~ for all the attention to be focused on his boys, not on him.

As Nat Weiss would often say, and most people don't realize ~
Brian was forced to exert a great effort to stay in the background and out of the spotlight ~ because, despite his shyness, he was such an overwhelming charismatic presence in his own right! Nat said that if Brian wasn't careful, he would tend to outshine the Beatles in a crowded room. That's what Nat said, and Alistair said, and Derek Taylor said...
