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?
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 .
