1962: The Beatles sign a five-year contract with Brian Epstein as their manager, giving Epstein 25 percent of their gross income. Epstein would begin to immediately direct their image away from leather jackets, instead encouraging them toward a smarter stage presentation, with matching suits and bows to the audience. Epstein would remain the band's manager through his death at the age of 32 in August 1967.
