This is Kenn Peterson, friend of Kenny. He went to the emergency room on sunday after an unexpected event.His condition is very serious, but still in flux. He will be aware of your good wishes. You may not have been able to get through on his home line, but it's now repaired and I'll try to answer or get back to you as soon as I can. I don't know what's going to happen, but I know he's tough. He's the John McCain of rock drummers.

Ken's in ICU and not doing well I'm told. He could use your prayers or best wishes and good thoughts, whatever works for ya'.......

I've known Ken since the 1970's.

He drummed for Off Broadway and Badfinger among others.

Ken is best known for his Circus and Old West poster collections.

Ken's also a drum collector and owns some of the rarest sets around.

Most important of all, Ken's a good guy. I'm hoping for the best. 

I'm reminded of a show where my band opened for Badfinger

Any time I hear Badfinger, I'm reminded of a show where my band opened for them in Albuquerque (early 1980's)

これは1982年5月のことだと思うけど、この人(Vaughn McMillan)のバンドが Joey の Badfinger の前座をした時の話。この1週前の公演(1982年5月7日)後に Badfinger のメンバー全員とマネージャーの計6人がマリファナの不法所持で逮捕(12日まで)。ツアーバスとすべての機材も没収。そのため、Albuquerque 公演では前座のバンドの楽器や機材を借りての演奏となった。

彼のバンドは地元 Albuquerque では人気があったので、当日の来場者も このバンド目当てが多かった とのことなので検索してみたら、Off The Wall というバンドっぽい。

The legendary show that The Iveys/Badfinger future manager, Bill Collins taped in their hometown to study and decide if the band was ready for a professional career based in London, England.

Mightily impressed, Collins convinced the young men's parents to let them give up apprenticeships to pursue their dreams.

Pete Ham, Ron Griffiths, David Jenkins and Mike Gibbins comprise of this excellent band, of which you will hear some samples here. Just teenagers at the time, except for David, who was 20, the band is super-tight and on fire. 

They were destined to become the legendary Badfinger ! 

If this project sells all of it's limited edition, more CDs of other music should be in line for fans to study the origins of Badfinger. That would be the musical legacy of The Iveys, from 1966-69.

Thanks to Ron Griffths of The Iveys for setting this project in motion.
