"The Statue 4 Eppy Campaign"

The Begining That Led To What Should Have Been Years Ago !

Back in 2014, Bob Pitt, a local Liverpool Singer/Songwriter, came up with an idea to raise money for a long overdue statue to be erected in Liverpool City Centre of Brian Epstein. Bob's idea was to try and write a song thanking Brian for giving us The Beatles, and to ask various Celebrities to sing or play on the song. Bob asked Billy Kinsley, famous for The Merseybeats and later formed "Liverpool Express" to produce the song. Billy took a very average song, and made it something very special.

Then one by one artistes from all corners of the industry came to studios around Liverpool and recorded their bit. Then everybody came together at Parr Street Studios, to record a Video of the song, filmed by the amazing talented Alan Humphrys. So many beautiful people did so much to help this project, and Bob would like to thank a few people again here in no particular order, Billy Kinsley, Alan Humphrys, Freda Kelly, Billy Butler, Billy J. Kramer, Paul Barber, Fiona Williams, Barry McPhillips,  Nick Robins, Bill Elms, David Stark, Garry Christian, Gary Millar, Beryl Marsden, John Mcardle and everybody else who kindly gave their time for the "Statue 4 Eppy" Campaign.
