The usual way is Steen. But Brian wanted to be called Stine.
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run. Me: It's not a Beatles song. Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right? Me: Yes. Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
My recollection of meeting Sam was in 2011 when I took my daughter Kate (then 18 years old) to the annual Mathew Street Festival, as it was called then. The usual place to meet up on the Saturday was 'The Grapes' on Mathew Street so, having met a few of the Forum members, including Mr Kite, Mr Mustard and The End in the pub (they may remember this), in walks Sam Leach and sat in the corner. Intrigued, my daughter went over to talk with him and he had all the time in the world for her, signing and selling her his book 'The Rocking City'. He told my daughter about the time he first met The Beatles in Hamburg in 1961 and gave them a 12 gig booking at his Cassanova club. And he went on to tell her about their eventual rise to fame. Of course he related this story to many visitors to Liverpool, usually in 'The Grapes' where he spent many an afternoon. What a lovely man he was. We have lost an integral part of The Beatles history. RIP Sam .
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
