2004年4月8日 0:02 I did work on a great version of Name Of The Game that I don't have a copy of but I'm sure a 'popper does. It's unreleased (of course) and it has Al's organ and remix. I toured with them a lot (we played Carnegie Hall together) They were great guys.
2004年5月24日 12:17 Badfinger & I were managed by Stan Polley. We were also both booked by Jeff Franklin at ATI, so we toured together a great deal and even co-headlined Carnegie Hall. Their record company asked me to remix and add organ to a track they did so it could be released as a single. I went to the studio and worked all night on that project. It was a version of Name Of the Game that had a full orchestra on it. I overdubbed an organ and spent all night remixing it. Never came out. It was pretty darn good, too!
Stan Polley is quite a character. He "manged" us, The Tokens, Lou Christie, Charlie Calello, Irwin Levine, Neil Bogart, Kenny Kerner & Richie Wise, and a few others. He extracted zillions of dollars from us, and then quietly disappeared to Palm Springs, where he resides today, in his late '80s. He got most of my Lynyrd Skynyrd money, all of Badfinger's, and probably a lot of the others mentioned. He was NOT a stupid man, he just had no regard for the human condition. In retrospect, he ruined my life financially until I got away from him and pulled myself up off the ground in the late '80s. He was not the only villain in my life, but a memorable one.
