The Beatles

A SECRET HISTORY by Alistair Taylor (2001)


A SECRET HISTORY by Alistair Taylor (2001)


London: John Blake, 2001. First Edition. Octavo. Black cloth, silver spine titles. 248 pages, b/w plates. A near fine copy in like dust jacket.

Known as "Mr. Fixit,” Taylor was Brian Epstein's personal assistant, the General Manager of NEMS Enterprises, and eventually the Office Manager of Apple until fired by Allen Klein. He is perhaps most famous for kindly refusing Epstein's early offer of 2.5 % of The Beatles' earnings. Oops. There isn't a lot of new information on The Beatles here, though a few sexcapades of the boys are thrown in for good measure. Also, Taylor gets more than a few things wrong, such as remembering when The Beatles opened a 1963 concert with the song 'Michelle'. There is, however, some very good information on Brian Epstein.
