“I was very, very good friends with Brian. I knew he was gay - but Brian, Judy (my wife) and I were a triangle of good friends. We used to go away together sometimes and it was great fun.
Wondering about his contribution to [the Beatles’] success, I know I wouldn’t have met them without him. Who’s to say what would have happened if Brian hadn’t been along? Who’s to say whether Ringo would have ever been part of the group? There are so many ifs about that one cannot evaluate.”

—  George Martin on Brian Epstein (via dailybeatleslyrics)
“We were all pretty close to Brian, but John might have been slightly closer. I think in the early days John had taken him aside and said, “Look, if you want to deal with this group, then I’m the man you go through.” He could do that, John: he was wise to the possibility - whereas the rest of us would say, “All right, man, sure.”
The theory is that when John went off to Spain on holiday with Brian, that’s what it was about - John trying to get his position clear as leader of the group. Also, I’m sure Brian was in love with John. We were all in love with John, but Brian was gay so that added an edge.”
