Brian ‘Eppy’ Epstein, George Martin, Mal Evans and Neil Aspinall. Oh my god and this story George Harrison re counts about Mal Evans during their first World Tour is really just marvellous:
"We were boating along the canals [in Amsterdam], waving and being fab and we saw a bloke standing in the crowd with a groovy-looking cloak on. We sent Mal to find out where he got it from. Mal jumped off or swam off the boat and about three hours later turned up at our hotel with the cloak, which he’d bought from the guy."
I really love the four of them. They were all so loyal and grand in their own ways.
