Epstein's homosexuality was not publicly known until some years after his death, although it had been an open secret among his friends and business associates. While Epstein was in the British Army, he commissioned a tailor to make him an officer's uniform. He wore the uniform when cruising the bars of London, but was arrested one night at the Army and Navy Club in Piccadilly by the military police for impersonating an officer.
Epstein managed to avoid a court martial by agreeing to see an army psychiatrist, who learned of Epstein's sexuality. Epstein later stated that his first homosexual experience was when he returned to Liverpool after being discharged. Epstein spent a year studying acting at RADA, but dropped out shortly after his arrest for "persistent importuning" outside a men's public toilet in Swiss Cottage , London. Cottaging , as it was called, was one of the few public ways that gay and bisexual men could meet at the time, especially if they were closeted.
Although Lennon often made sarcastic comments about Epstein's homosexuality to friends and to Epstein personally, no one outside the group's inner circle was allowed to comment. Ian Sharp, one of Lennon's art-school friends, once made a sarcastic remark about Epstein, saying, "Which one of you [Beatles] does he fancy?
McCartney sent him a letter directing him to have no contact with any of them in the future. In his autobiography, Pete Best stated that Epstein drove them both to Blackpool one evening where Epstein expressed his "very fond admiration.
Lennon always denied the rumours, telling Playboy in "Well, it was almost a love affair, but not quite. It was never consummated After the start of his management career, Epstein started taking stimulants, usually Preludin , which did not require a prescription at the time. Epstein explained his use of the drug as the only means of staying awake at night during numerous concert tours.
In , after having been introduced to cannabis by Bob Dylan in New York, Epstein was observed by McCartney standing in front of a mirror, pointing at himself and repeatedly saying "Jew!
During the four months when the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper was being recorded, Epstein spent his time on holiday, or at the Priory Clinic in Putney, where he tried unsuccessfully to curb his drug use. He left the Priory to attend the Sgt. Epstein added his name to an advertisement that appeared in The Times on 24 July , which called for the legalisation of cannabis, the release of all prisoners imprisoned because of possession, and research into marijuana's medical uses.
The advertisement was sponsored by a group called Soma and was signed by sixty-five people, including the Beatles, Scottish psychiatrist R. Laing , sixteen doctors, and two members of parliament.
I am not addicted to either, but I have been very drunk and very 'high'. Epstein immediately asked to play, as he was known for his love of gambling. Epstein often lost thousands of pounds by playing baccarat or chemin de fer the original version of baccarat when it was introduced in France , but would stay at Curzon House the whole evening, eating an expensive meal and drinking fine wines.
The club never presented Epstein with a bill, as they knew he lost so much in the casino. Epstein attended a traditional shiva in Liverpool after his father died, having just come out of the Priory clinic where he had been trying to cure his acute insomnia and addiction to amphetamines.
After they arrived, Epstein decided to drive back to London alone because an expected group of friends he had invited failed to arrive, although they did turn up after Epstein left. Brown thought that Epstein sounded "very groggy" and suggested he take a train back down to the nearest railway station, in Uckfield , instead of driving under the influence of Tuinal.
Epstein replied that he would eat something, read his mail, and watch Juke Box Jury before phoning Brown to tell him which train to meet. He never called again. Epstein died of an overdose of Carbitral , a form of barbiturate or sleeping pill,  in his locked bedroom on 27 August He was discovered after his butler had knocked on the door and then, hearing no response,  asked the housekeeper to call the police.
Epstein had previously agreed to travel to Bangor after the August Bank Holiday. According to Brown the note read in part, "This is all too much and I can't take it any more. When confronted with the notes, Epstein told Brown that he would be grateful if Brown did not tell anyone, and that he was sorry he had made Brown worry. He explained that when he wrote the note and composed the will he had simply taken one pill too many, and that he had no intention of overdosing, promising to be more careful in the future.
Brown later wrote that he wondered if he had done the right thing by not showing the note to Epstein's doctor, Norman Cowan, who would have stopped prescribing drugs. The pathologist, Dr Donald Teare , stated that Epstein had been taking bromide in the form of Carbitral for some time, and that the barbiturate level in Epstein's blood was a "low fatal level".
The Beatles did not attend Epstein's funeral, both to allow his family some privacy and to avoid attracting fans and the media.
However, flowers are forbidden at Jewish funerals and burials. Weiss and Ellis discussed this dilemma while walking back to the grave, where they observed two men beginning to shovel dirt onto the casket. Ellis later wrote: "Nat, who himself was Jewish, cast the newspaper package unopened onto Brian's coffin, where it was swiftly covered by earth. Epstein was upset that he was not honoured along with Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr when they received the MBE in , though Harrison once said that the MBE stood for "Mister Brian Epstein";   The Beatles were among the earliest entrants into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , but Epstein was not included in the Hall's "Non-Performers' Section" until , and not without controversy as he was inducted alongside Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham who refused to attend, in part in protest at what he perceived as the indignity of a joint induction.
It's almost as if he's been written out of the [Beatles] story. I don't think they'd have got anywhere without Brian. Epstein's influence on the Beatles and his complicated personal life continue to provoke controversy. A film of the same name was scheduled for release in , originally to be produced by Bruce Cohen and directed by Peyton Reed. Tiwary said about that project that the film would "be less a music bio and more of an inspirational human-interest story about an outsider".
Epstein was once asked about the future of the Beatles and their "fresh honesty" as he put it , which the interviewer thought could be "corrupted by time". He replied by saying, "I think they will go in the reverse direction, and become more honest.

Brian Epstein was homoseksueel en het gerucht ging dat hij verliefd was op John Lennon en zelfs een verhouding met hem had toen zij samen in in Spanje op vakantie gingen. Lennon heeft deze geruchten later ontkend. Epstein overleed aan een overdosis drugs waarschijnlijk slaappillen op 27 augustus Officieel werd gesproken van een ongeluk, maar er werd ook gespeculeerd over zelfmoord. Zijn homoseksualiteit was niet alleen volkomen onacceptabel voor het Engeland van de jaren zestig en de middle class waar Epstein uit afkomstig was, maar ook zelf zou hij, naar verluidt, met zijn geaardheid geen raad hebben geweten.
Epstein had altijd grote invloed gehad op het vormgeven en presenteren van The Beatles. Uit Wikipedia, de vrije encyclopedie.
