 Very sad news, Sam passed away last night. Sam Leach. was a Liverpool music scene legend.

The Beatles in Aldershot

Sam Leach, their then agent, and wanting to become their manager, attempted to introduce The Beatles to London agents by promoting shows at The Palais Ballroom, on the corner of Perowne Street and Queens Road in Aldershot on 9 December 1961. The show was not advertised properly and, as a result, only 18 people attended. The local newspaper, The Aldershot News, failed to publish Sam Leach's advertisement for the show. However, the band and friends had their own fun after the show, including a mock funeral for Paul McCartney. Weeks after this Brian Epstein became the group's manager.

  1. Quite pitiful McCarney nor Ringo even acknowledged the passing of this legend who was responsible for their success. If there were no Sam there would have been no Beatles. Classless acts both of them
