Fundraiser starts for 'Fifth Beatle' statue in Liverpool

September 20, 2019

Music historians are asking for donations to fund a statue honouring Beatles manager Brian Epstein.

Known as the 'Fifth Beatle,' Epstein discovered the band in Liverpool's Cavern Club in 1961. He is also created with developing the 'Merseybeat' sound with numerous groups and singers.

Campaigners say they need to raise a minimum of £60,000 to build the memorial in the city. The project's sculptor, Andy Edwards, has already created a bronze of the band itself at Liverpool's Pier Head.

 

"After spending a lot of time staring at Brian Epstein’s face, I see before anything else, the charm and feeling in his eyes. I see a smile born of trust. A smile that elicits a smile back, an exchange of confidence and encouragement in what might happen. This is what I want to capture in Brian’s sculpture to share with everyone who will see it."
