There are over 70 statues of The Beatles around the world, but none of their iconic manager, without whom the band would never have made such a phenomenal and ongoing impact. We aim to rectify that. So our vision is to realize a world first: a statue of Brian, The Fifth Beatle, and one of the world's great creative individuals.
Brian united the world in the most powerfully sustaining way, not just through The Fab 4, but through his nurturing of the wider music scene in Liverpool at the time. Artists such as Gerry and the Pacemakers, Cilla Black, Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, The Moody Blues and The Chants were all part of his roster of incredible talent.
He gave pride to his community and his impact on the world is overwhelmingly positive. Yet his beautiful smiling face is unknown to so many around the world - this is why he needs a statue. His legacy is also largely unseen, even though his impact on popular culture is incalculable. As Andrew Lancel says in our campaign video, Brian had a hand in changing the world. This is why he needs this memorial. He needs to stay amongst us.
