Details of Neil Aspinall's finances emerge
Neil Aspinall, The Beatles‘ personal assistant and financial expert, left nearly £7 million in his will.
Aspinall, who died of lung cancer in March 2008, ran the band’s business empire for 40 years.
His initial wage was £1 per hour.
As The Beatles‘ fame grew, Aspinall took on a more financial role and eventually became head of Apple – a position he held until shortly before his death. Although not strictly a musician, he played harmonica on ‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite’ and sang backing vocals on ‘Yellow Submarine’.
The Times reports that Aspinall left a net estate of £6,947,818.
The money has been left in a trust, with the income going to his widow Suzy.
