Brian Epstein Wigs Out

Paul and manager Epstein in New York, 1964. "That was one of the most exciting periods of my life," Ringo says. "We came on such a high, and, of course, there were all those Beatles wigs around. Brian was loose enough to put the wig on and have a laugh. I think that only I could have gotten shots this candid because they knew they weren't going to go anywhere. It wasn't like, 'Oh my god, they're gonna be in the paper.' All anyone could talk about when we came to America was our hair. The boots were famous. The jackets were famous. The pop songs were famous, but they came in about third. The hair was first."
