Badfinger

Biography

Badfinger's music has often been referred to as "drunken Beatles," a slower, more rock 'n' roll-influenced take on Let It Be-era Fab Four. Guitarist Pete Ham's bluesy tones underscored his vocal harmonies, sung in a passionately English timbre with bassist Tom Evans and guitarist Joey Molland. Paul McCartney discovered the band in 1968, and promptly signed them to the Beatles' Apple Records label. Their first hit came in 1969, the memorably catchy "Come And Get It." The two Badfinger hits featured here came from the band's third LP, Straight Up, produced by George Harrison and Todd Rundgren. Ham took his life in 1975, Evans took his in 1983. Molland continues to tour under the Badfinger name.
