Terry Doran--oops it is Alan


Terry Doran is a fellow who was sort of in the background in the Beatles story for a long time. He was friends with Brian Epstein and later became George's personal assistant. You can see him in this photo with George. He has been said to have been a difficult man to deal with and he seemed to dislike Beatle fans.

  3. Terry Doran actually ran Apple publishing followed by Apple records in its first carnation.

    Google the band Focal Point who were the first band signed to Apple and there is some info on him.
    He was actually very well liked in music circles of the 60s.

  5. Hi Steve! I got your email today but hadn't responded yet. I do not have much information on Terry, but maybe someone here does. I do know that he was still working for George in 1979 at Friar Park.

  9. Some people simply like freaks, so maybe that`s why? ;-)

  12. Terry is a wonderful man and was NEVER hard to deal with. He is retired and living in GB (where, I will not tell). One of the best people I have known. One of the Beatles trusted friends and one who will never write a book.
