A 5-year management contract was signed by four members at then-drummer Pete Best's home on January 24, 1962. Brian Epstein made them wear suits and ties, classic shoes, and newer haircuts. They were advised to update their manners on stage and quit eating and drinking in public. On the 1st of January, 1962, The Beatles came to London and recorded fifteen songs at the Decca Records. They weren't hired, but the songs helped them out later In May that same year, Epstein cancelled their contract with Tony Sheridan and the German Label Brian Epstein was persistent in trying to sign a record deal for the Beatles, even after being rejected by every major record label in UK, like Columbia, Philips, Oriole, Decca, and Pye Pete Best John Lennon George Harrison Paul McCartney Stuart Sutcliffe A song from one of the Beatles demo tapes was heard by Parlophone's George Martin, and he liked it.
