The comparison to the Beatles came quite naturally. Originally signed to Apple Records and with their first hit (Come and Get it) penned by Paul McCartney, it appeared as if Badfinger could pick up where the Beatles left off. The early 70’s saw them create albums that were considered to be part of the early Power Pop genre which also yielded some of the finest harmonies and craftsmanship of the decade. Sadly, with all the success they had, Badfinger received only a mere fraction of what they were entitled and amidst legal red tape they were disabled by the suicide of their creative leader Pete Ham. Okay, not exactly a career ended by concussions, but a career cut short and left wondering what could have been.
