It was on this date in 1961, a customer walked into Brian Epstein’s record store in Liverpool, England and asked for a copy of ”My Bonnie” by ”Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers.”
Turns out ”The Beat Brothers” were actually ”The Beatles,” and had recorded the song with Sheridan in Hamburg, West Germany.
The request prompted Epstein to check out the group for himself, and he was surprised to discover that ”The Beatles” were not German but one of the most popular bands in Liverpool.
Within a month, he became their manager.
