Joey Molland, Tom Evans, Pete Ham,
and Mike Gibbins
They were a band that enjoyed the best and endured the worst.
They had four hit songs in a row after signing a recording contract with The
Beatles’ Apple Records; two members wrote a song that became a number one hit
for another artist. They wrote the songs, and they were protégés of the biggest
band in the world. The group known as Badfinger had everything going for them –
they were on top and perfectly positioned to stay there for a long time. Then
it all came crashing down.
