    What a tragic tale. What a brilliant band.

    Yeah, it sounds like their management screwed them.

    Love Badfinger. My old band used to do No Matter What and Come And Get It.

    Their albums are well worth getting into too. Some great guitar playing from both Pete and Joey.

    Day After Day is a perfect rock song.

    Remember the first time I heard "No Matter What", I thought it was a new Beatles single. The vocal harmonies were Beatle-good. One of the knocks on Badfinger was that they were the "Beatles-lite". I even heard conspiracy theories that they really were the Beatles recording under a different name. Actually their songs were much more "power-pop" than the Beatles, and timeless in their own right (IMHO). Such a shame that greedy management destroyed them!

    I saw the film THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN at the "midnight movies," in a highly-tuned medicinal state. Of course, the film was mind-blowing, but the major bonus was that I was turned on to Badfinger for the first time.

    I wore out a couple of Badfinger Straight Up 8 tracks and later the album was out of print and hard to find for a while. My favorite Badfinger album.

    Sir James Paul McCartney wrote Come and Get It. What a great song. I seem to remember the U.S. Air Force using it on t.v. recruiting adds circa 1970/1971. I've still got the Apple label 45 sitting around in my collection...right next to Day After Day (my personal Badfinger favorite) and No Matter What (which we played in a band when I was in high school).

    They also wrote this great song (though I prefer Nilsson's take on it)

    +1 Brilliant. Just great harmonies - which are built on great melodies sung well.

    I had that 45RPM, Maybe Tomorrow. In junior high, hey.

    Badfinger - possibly my favorite pop group of all time. No Matter What is my favorite track of theirs. I just love when the guitar kicks in through the leslie cabinet.

    I liked that they used "Baby Blue" as the closing song on the last episode of Breaking Bad. Brought Badfinger to the attention of a lot of people who may never have known what a great band they were.

    In the Badfinger documentary it was mentioned that when the band heard Nilsson in the studio singing Without You they were absolutely blown away.
