No Matter What a tribute to the music of Badfinger (April 30, 2016) 
No Matter What a tribute to the music of Badfinger
Brooke Saunders, who is organizing the tribute show, met Mike Gibbins, the drummer for Badfinger, while traveling in 1977.

“I was in England for a family reunion and afterwards went to Swansea, Wales, and met Pete Ham’s brother, John, and Mike Gibbins,” says Saunders.

“I spent a week there getting to know Mike and various people associated with Badfinger. Mike gave me a quarter-inch tape of their last, unreleased album, “Head First,” and five rare photographs.” 

“One of my best moments was strumming a few chords on Pete’s guitars,” adds Saunders. “His iconic SG – was given to him by George Harrison, who had used it on Revolver, plus John Lennon played it on The White Album.

Mike and I kept in touch for a while, and I was eventually able to meet Tom Evans and Joey Molland, who has played in Richmond on occasion.” 
The show will include nearly 30 Badfinger songs, plus other tunes from Beatles solo projects on which band members played, including “My Sweet Lord” and “It Don’t Come Easy.”
