The Beatles’ journey from local heroes to global superstars is a legendary tale that began in October 1962 when they signed a contract with their new manager, Brian Epstein. This historic contract marked the pivotal moment that set the band on the path to changing the course of music history forever.
The contract, signed just days before the release of their debut single, “Love Me Do,” entrusted Epstein with the responsibility of overseeing every aspect of The Beatles’ career. From booking concerts to managing publicity and even guiding their fashion choices, Epstein played a crucial role in their rise to fame.
Epstein’s belief in the band’s potential was unwavering. He famously stated:
“I never thought that they would be anything less than the greatest stars in the world – and I mean that.”
His vision for The Beatles was clear: they were destined for greatness, and he aimed to harness their talent while allowing their wild spirit to remain untamed.
