Dick James was the publisher Epstein found for the Beatles - they did the deal together. James got a great deal though - he owned 40% of the company. Epstein got 5%, Lennon & McCartney 15%.

James later sold his share to ATV Music. Eventually, ATV Music came under the control of a guy called Robert Holmes A'Court.

He then sold ATV Music to a certain Michael Jackson....

Paul: What do you mean dear?
Heather: Well I don't know how to tell you this...but the babies aren't yours.
Paul: WHAT?!
Heather: Well...during the tour, me and Abe....well....you know...
Paul: What the hell? I can't believe this! How could you do that?
Heather: You mean conceive the babys? Well it wasn't that hard, what we did was.....
Paul: I know THAT! I can't believe this. And Abe too. How could he do this! It just had to be Abe. I knew I should have paid him salary when I had the chance. I'm going to fire him right now, and give him a piece of my mind!
Heather: Don't do that Paul! Please don't! Remember, I'm pregnant.
Paul: Why should I care!? They're not mine! I'm still going to call him.

All those who make fortune and fame have parasites around them... Sometimes I can figure out the celebrities'paranoia when all kind of people try to get closer and invade their private life to take any kind of advantages from them...
DJ, "Magic"Alex Mardas, Allen Klein, were really some of Beatles'parasites...as for Yoko, she was the "parasite" who John loved, he WANTED to have that "parasite", what could anyone have done??

Peace.

A Beatle parasite: Alex Mardas (aka "Magic Alex").

Magic Alex is a Genious... He had ideas so new and crazy that nobody can understand it...
He mess up with the Building of the "studio" and taking advatage of the Lennon - Cynthia break up by Sleeping with her...
But he is a genious...[:D]

Magic Alex was a bit off, WAD. None of his ideas worked. What about his recording studio. What a joke. Probably just wanted to hang with the boys and share their leafy stuff.[:D]

Alex and Oasis are the best listed here, in my opinion.

Yet there is the other side of this coin...The Beatles' close circle of friends and loyal assistants like Mal, Derek and Neil. They are more worth discussion than the parasites!

I'm sure if a true list of every Beatles parasite could be generated, the list would be endless. Bet there were lotsa folks wanted to get close to them just to exploit them and get something selfish out of it.

magic alex was soooo sixties I think [:D][:D]. So funny in anthology! I think maybe he was no conscious parasite, but did he really think he was being innovative and helping the beatles.

Maybe we could consider most apple-employees as parasites...
