The Biggest Loser in Beatles History Walked Away Over a Paltry Amount of Money

1685298614 Allan Williams biggest loser Beatles history

Imagine you could go back in time and buy stock in The Beatles in 1960 or 1961. A small investment would be worth a fortune today. Allan Williams had some Beatles stock back then. What he did with it made him the biggest loser in Beatles’ history even while being one of the most important people to the band.

Allan Williams became the biggest loser in Beatles history by walking away over £9 

The Beatles made it big in England in early 1963 when “Please Please Me” (No. 2) and “From Me To You” (No. 1) became the first of many top-10 hits. A little more than a decade later, the band turned down a $250 million reunion offer. In just eight years, The Beatles rose to the pinnacle of international stardom, became musical trendsetters, and changed everything about pop music.
