Allan Williams: First Beatles manager passes away

The Beatles Story team is shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of original booking agent and first manager of The Beatles, Allan Williams, aged 86.

Allan played a significant role in the story of the Beatles. His involvement in the Beatles’ early years in Liverpool and onto Hamburg helped shape the band in to what we see and know today.

 

He personally drove the van to take the young band to Hamburg, Germany in 1960, where they gained the vital show business experience that led to their emergence on the world stage.

In May this year Allan was awarded with a top civic honour in recognition of his contribution to the music industry in Liverpool.

 

 

Martin King, of The Beatles Story, said: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Allan Williams. Our thoughts go out to his family at this sad time. Allan was a friend to many of us at the Beatles Story and his legacy will continue to be told for years to come.”
