Aspinall was studying to be an accountant when he first met the Beatles in late 1960, as a result of renting lodgings at the house of their drummer at the time, Pete Best.
Aspinall, like Evans, also took on some miscellaneous parts on Beatles records when a simple task was needed that any extra hand could perform, no musical experience or ability necessary.
Aspinall even lost his job briefly when Allen Klein was brought in to clean house, although common sense prevailed and he (unlike many of the people Klein got rid of) was reinstalled.

Neil decided in July 1962 to become the group's official road manager (as he was earning more money than he was an as an accountant).

NEIL: Well, we had a lot of help from George, all the others agreed to genuine footage we could cut in from their archives.
NEIL: I asked George what he thought about me doing some more Rutles things, and he said, "Why not, it's all part of the soup," which I think is a nice way of putting it.
NEIL: Yeah, me too, but I was lucky at the same time, another door o pened for me and I got myself into children's television and writing children's stories and things like that, which was cool because I was able to write from home, not missing seeing my family grow up.

Neil Aspinall has been an important assistant to the Beatles since the early 1960s, first as their road manager, and then as an administrator of their financial company, Apple.

Largely through chance, Mal Evans became (with Neil Aspinall) one of the Beatles' two main road managers throughout Beatlemania.
Aspinall and Evans were probably, aside from manager Brian Epstein, the two people most apt to be in the Fab Four's company from 1963 to 1966, the most intense years of their international fame.
In the summer of 1963, Brian Epstein asked him to become the Beatles' second manager, as the group's increasingly frenzied touring schedule was proving impossible for Neil Aspinall to handle alone.

Aspinall, who, it seems to me, could better represent the interests of his clients by providing them with an additional revenue stream through online music purchases rather than spending his time fighting a frivolous lawsuit over the use of a nonsimilar logo in an online music store.
