1964-5年頃、Vic Lewis Organisation は Brian Epstein の Nems Enterprises に吸収され(法的には66年)、取締役 (主にbooking agent担当。Nemsには1977年まで在籍) になった。 その関係で Beatles とは関係が深く、彼らの来日公演にも深く関与している。

Lewis は協同企画の永島達司に日本公演の協力を要請。
「ビートルズが日本に行きたがっている。 日本公演をやってみないか? 絶対に損はさせない」
永島は4歳から8歳まで London 在住で、
Lewis より7歳若いので面識はなかったが、当時通っていた小学校は偶然にも Lewis と同じだった

Badfinger  
 
tommy wasn't anyone's fool, he'd been drinking since he got out of school
day after day, he's always ready to play
now that he’s forever young, he'll keep singing at the top of his lungs
till we're all gone, we'll have his songs
 
oh why'd you have to leave us all so soon?
 
it was a badfinger, kept you down
it was a badfinger, pushed you around
 
peter had an open heart, he'd never thought someone would tear him apart
now its all true, broke his heart in two
pete i gotta tell you a story, no matter what they'll never take your glory
without you, we all feel blue
 
oh why'd you have to leave us all so soon?
 
it was a badfinger, kept you down
it was a badfinger, pushed you around
