Liverpool May Honor Fifth Beatles
The Liverpool city council is considering plans to name streets after "fifth Beatles" Pete Best, Brian Epstein and Stuart Sutcliffe.
New Liverpool Beatles Appreciation Society spokesman John James Chambers, whose organization made the application for the aforementioned honors, said: "Epstein, Sutcliffe and Best are all Beatles icons and made a major contribution. They are all synonymous with The Beatles. In Brian Epstein's case, he really was Mr. Liverpool. When [music producer and promoter] Tony Wilson died, he was posthumously given the freedom of Manchester because he was considered to be Mr. Manchester. Brian Epstein has never really been officially honored." more on this story
