Pop impresario. Epstein, photographed here with David Wynne's bronze sculpture of the Beatles, was the band's first manager. He became aware of their popularity while in charge of the record section at the NEMS Store where he worked in Liverpool. Epstein saw the Beatles perform at the Cavern in 1962, and shortly afterwards, signed to manage their meteoric rise to fame.
