Beatles Manager Last Day

Epstein died at this address in 1967 after excess drug use

Location: 24 Chapel Street, SW1X

Description: It was at this address (the bedroom to be exact) in 1967 during the August Bank Holiday weekend, that a sad and unhappy Brian Epstein ended his days in what appeared to be suicide and a drug-induced death.

However it was more than likely that Epstein in an alcohol and sleeping pill state became confused and took a lethal concoction.

Epstein became heavily involved in the 1960s drug scene, and during the four months when the Sgt. Pepper album was being recorded, spent his time on holiday, or at the Priory Clinic, in Putney, London, where he tried unsuccessfully to curb his drug use.

Epstein was overlooked when Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr were honoured with the MBE in 1965, Harrison (or McCartney) once said that the MBE stood for 'Mister Brian Epstein'.

The Beatles were among the earliest entrants into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but Epstein is not even in the Hall's 'Non-Performer's Section' - which in itself serves as an injustice to a great musical career.
