Badfinger a great band with a lot of talent and promise that should have been huge.  But because of inner turmoil, money issues, bad management, label troubles both times, plain old bad luck, etc. just when it started looking good for the band things started deteriorating and culminated in tragedy with Pete Ham's suicide.  Tom Evans would commit suicide three years later.

 

But enough of that as it truly is a sad and tragic story.  For anyone interested in it, there's a few good documentaries on YT about the band just do a YT search.  And here's an article by UCR, http://ultimateclassicrock.com/history-of-pete-ham-badfinger/

 

And I'm sure there are more articles on the internet as well.

 

The band got their first break as The Iveys and would later rename themselves Badfinger after John Lennon's With a Little Help From My Friends (which at one time had a working title of Badfinger Boogie).
