gig promoter Sam Leach dies at 81


After The Beatles rose to fame, Sam continued to devote his life to Merseybeat history and toured the world lecturing on his former proteges.

He was a regular sight at The Grapes pub in Mathew Street , where he signed copies of his book, and entertained tourists with tales of his days with the Fab Four.

He kept in regular touch with Sir Paul McCartney and met him backstage when he played at the ECHO Arena last year.

Johnny Hutchinson, a member of The Big Three who were Liverpool contemporaries of The Beatles, said: “It’s the end of an era.

“Sam kept us all going in those days. We used to get the same amount of money as The Beatles got. None of us would have made it without him, or without Brian Epstein.

“There was nobody like him and he kept the memory of those early years of The Beatles alive.”

Jon Keats, one of the directors of The Cavern , said: “It’s sad news as we’ve lost another part of the Cavern’s and the Liverpool family’s history.

“Sam was a key part of the early years of The Beatles and put on many of their shows in Liverpool before they hit the big time.”
