SUPER RARE autographs of Badfinger, obtained in person in Los Angeles in 1972. Group included Tom Evans (deceased 1983), Pete Ham (deceased 1975), Mike Gibbins (deceased 2005), and Joey Molland, who will be celebrating his 70th birthday this month.

The group played a series of concerts at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go, and many record people were there, including my uncle's station, who was playing "Day After Day' in heavy rotation at the time. He said the band was ready for a huge breakout, and destined for greatness. Unfortunately, their demons took the best of them, as two of the bandmates took their own lives within the next decade.

"Baby Blue" was a favorite of mine that they sang, and these beautiful autographs, signed in ballpoint pen, are on a baby blue page. Quite simply, your friends will cr*p themselves when they see these. Photos not included in auction, just the autographs themselves (sorry!). My daughter is heading off to college, and need to pay some university expenses, and reluctantly letting this treasure go.

This is from our private collection, personally received by family, no COA (please don't ask) - have had this in our collection for MANY decades, and as this is a personal item, there are NO returns - those in the know will realize the true value, and you'll be very happy with your new items. Please only bid if you are a serious bidder - your bid is binding, and I want to make sure this goes to a wonderful home, with a responsible bidder - I'll make sure I start the bidding at a reasonable amount, as I know everyone is looking for a great value. And, absolutely, I will make sure it is WELL packaged, hence the shipping charge. Best of luck!

[eBay] Hollies Australia New Zealand 1971 Tour Program

Hollies Australia New Zealand (January and February 1971) Tour Program
Hollies Australia tour January and February 1971
also features an ad for the forthcoming Michael Nesmith/Badfinger tour 
って書いてある。 この年、Kinks との  Australia tour も May/June に計画されていたけど、それ以前に別の計画があって、それが中止されて Kinks とのツアーに変更 (結局それも不参加)ってことなのか? 1971年なのに1968年と書いている売り手なので、単に Kinks を Michael Nesmith と書き間違えた? 
この Hollies のツアーも Kinks のツアーも、tour promoter は同一の John Keefe, David Drew & Paul Dainty です。

1970年秋 Badfinger と共演していた George Stevens は、3年後 Jim Croce と一緒に飛行機事故死。
   Because of a lost coin flip, Jim Croce got the last chartered plane at a Natchitoches, La., airport instead of the Grass Roots; the plane crashed into a pecan tree at the end of the runway, killing Croce and everyone else aboard.  
当時は Jim Croce よりも Grass Roots の方がビッグだったのでその日最後のチャーター便を譲ってもらおうとしたけど、応じてもらえず、結局コインの裏表で Jim Croce 側が勝った。この時の Grass Roots のメンバーのひとりが 1982年に Tom, Mike, Bob の Badfinger に加わった Reed Kailing 。
