It is regrettable they are known for the tragedy that happened Badfinger made some of the finer albums of the early1970`s and some of the more enduring songs of that era. Written off by critics as counterfeit Beatles, there was a hell of a lot more depth to the band than that. Pete Ham was one of the finer songwriters of all time, having written classics such as Day After day, baby Blue, No matter What(one of the great rock classics), The Name of the Game. These are just examples of ham`s stellar songwriting. The man had a terrific vocal side and was quite adept on piano, and especially guitar. I have seen footage and I cannot believe how vastly underrated Ham was. Mike Gibbons was a fine , steady drummer, while Tommy Evans and Joey Molland were no slouches as songwriters themselves. It was Evans that co-wrote `Without You' with Pete Ham , and this became a monster hit when harry Nilsson covered it, and later, Mariah Carey. Due to horrendous managerial and financial woes, Pete Ham hung himself, as did Tommy Evans in later years. Their story is way too long for me to recount here, but a book worth seeking out about the band is `Without You; the tragic story of Badfinger. One of their albums that is a highly underrated gem, is `Wish You were Here'(1974), one of the great lost classics of the `70`s. this was pulled from the shelves, by their record company due to their management`s misdeeds.
