The Fifth Beatle

Tony had too much tryptophan so George is once again left minding the GATES. Have no fear! George is joined by Vivek J. Tiwary, the author of the multi-award winning graphic novel, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story. You have heard George gush about this book, which was illustrated by Andrew Robinson and Kyle Baker. Vivek was kind enough to share the behind-the-scenes process of writing the story of his "historical mentor." Plus, he talks about his award winning past as a producer on Broadway, his current project writing the screenplay for the film adaptation of The Fifth Beatle, and what the future holds for his multi-platform arts and entertainment company, Tiwary Entertainment Group. 

You can find out more about Vivek and The Fifth Beatle at www.tiwaryent.com and www.thefifthbeatle.com. Also, follow and "Like" him on Facebook at Vivek J. Tiwary and The Fifth Beatle Film and follow him on Twitter at Vivek J. Tiwary. Tell him George and Tony sent you.

What?! You don't know who Brian Epstein is and why he is important to the success of the Beatles? You haven't read Vivek's The Fifth Beatle? Please consider remedying this situation by ordering this exquisite graphic novel (and anything else you need for this holiday season) using the Amazon link at www.georgeandtony.com. It also makes a great gift. Thank you for your support!

NOTE: Please pardon some of the audio quality during this episode.

Wait...you don't know who the Beatles are???  AARRGGHH!!!
