Original Badfinger with Joey Molland Badfinger has a pedigree second to none. The Beatles ‘protégés, the inventors of Power Pop and in the words of Paul McCartney, “the writers of the killer song of all time” – ‘Without You’. The first band to be signed to the Beatles’ Apple label, Badfinger launched its career in 1969 with the Paul McCartney penned classic ‘Come And Get It’ eventually becoming Apple’s biggest selling artist. Being songwriters in their own right Badfinger soon followed with a string of hits:
‘Come and Get it’, ‘No Matter What’, ‘Day after Day’ & ‘Baby Blue’ were all Top 10 hits in the UK, USA & Canada whilst ‘Without You’ (the worldwide No.1 hit for Harry Nilsson, Mariah Carey and covered by over 180 artists) is another Badfinger original.
The phenomenal success that Badfinger achieved in the early Seventies makes them one of the most respected bands in Rock history and their music still continues to command critical acclaim with many of the songs featuring in the soundtracks of blockbuster movies and TV soundtracks. The USA smash hit Breaking Bad featured Baby Blue in the finale scene of the series…. it rocketed back into the American Download Charts instantly bringing a whole generation of new fans to Badfinger.
The Badfinger story is the stuff of legend. The tragic losses of Pete Ham in 1975 and Tom Evans in 1983 along with the multi-million dollar lawsuits all had a devastating impact on the band. However, the Music survived…and Bob Jackson is continuing the long awaited next chapter in the band’s compelling history.
