REBEAT Magazine Interview: "If I had to boil down the message of the Brian Epstein story to one succinct message, it’s that no dream is too impossible and no person too unlikely to realize that dream" says The Fifth Beatle writer / producer Vivek J. Tiwary in this illuminating interview with REBEAT Magazine. "Brian was there when they were rough-and-tumble, when nobody wanted them, when no manager wanted them, even when they got kicked out of Germany because they were underage! Brian was there from the very, very beginning, and that’s how Paul explained why he thinks Brian deserves the title 'Fifth Beatle.'”
