Beatles History: The Beatles Sign with Brian Epstein

At the NEMS office, the Beatles signed a contract on January 24, 1962 to have Brian Epstein manage them. A little known Beatle fact, however, is that this contract was not properly executed since Epstein did not sign the document himself, knowing that he was taking a chance on a group with a tough, rough-and-tumble background. It was not until October 9, 1962 (Lennon's birthday) that a proper, legally binding agreement was signed by all parties.
