Badfinger beat me up once! — John Weathers 
He (John Weathers) was close friends with another Liverpool group with Swansea roots: Badfinger (known originally as the Iveys). He reveals that “they beat me up once!” 
 
“Yes,” he continues, “their guitar player [Dai] had a brother [Alwyne Jenkins] who was a roadie, and he was bad-mouthing me. We got to a gig one afternoon to set up, and he was there. So I started giving him a hard time about bad-mouthing me, because there was no substance behind it. There was a little bit of pushing and shoving, and all of a sudden the whole of Badfinger jumped on me and gave me a good kicking. Luckily one of the doormen happened to come in and put a stop to it.” Weathers goes on to say that was quickly “water under the bridge. Two weeks later we got back together again, and they were all apologizing for being so silly; they had thought I was going to beat up on their roadie! They were great guys, absolutely splendid guys.”
