Call in to speak with the host
New York Times bestselling author Vivek Tiwary of The Fifth Beatle joins host Robin Milling for Let's Do Lunch! at Giorgio's. A Beatles fan since the womb, it was a passion project 21 years in the making for Vivek to tell the untold story of The Beatles manager and founder Brian Epstein. Through years of interviews with people who knew him, the tale of seeing them at The Cavern Club to bringing them to the world stage unfolds in this graphic novel illustrated by Andrew C. Robinson.
A film is already in the works based on the novel, with Bring It On director Peyton Reed at the helm. Casting is a bit hush hush but there will be plenty of music due to unlimited access to the Lennon/McCartney catalog. What Vivek may have in common with Epstein is not taking 'no' for an answer. He even has the four rejection letters to prove it. He says, “That's what Brian Epstein went through. He got rejected for The Beatles by every single record label!”
'Thumbs up' came from Paul McCartney, Ringo, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. Vivek was especially pleased with McCartney's review and his warmth about Brian's memory. He did famously say, 'If anyone was the fifth Beatle, it was Brian.'
