Replacement drummer for Mike Gibbins (Spring 1972) 
Stu Boy King (The Dictators 1973-75) was interviewed by Ugly Things magazine in in 2015.
He somehow got acquainted with Stan Polley. Polley hooked him up with Badfinger. Stu Boy was living in Bandfinger's recording studio for a period of time and the band seemed interested in hiring him as a drummer. They backed off because of potential visa/travel complications.

(1973) The Dictators put out ads and auditioned drummers and chose Stu Boy King, mostly because he had a nice set of drums and a rich millionaire detective father. 
Martin H. Samuel 
4度目のUSツアーの開始1ヶ月前、Mike Gibbins が一時 Badfinger を抜けた時(May - Jul 1972)、オーディションを受けたひとり。 
When Badfinger were auditioning for a Mike Gibbins replacement, Martin H. Samuel managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by failing to own up to being a songwriter. He'd been conditioned into believing bands didn't want song-writing drummers so, when asked by Pete Ham, he denied he was skilled in such ways not knowing that they wanted an all-writing band.

Owen Gibbins / Reunited with my late fathers guitar after a lifetime

Reunited with my late fathers guitar after a lifetime. 

My first jaunt to the USA was in my mothers belly. So I met Tommy Walker months before I was born. He was a friend of my dad during his early 70s touring/recording in the states. I got to meet Tommy in person over the years and it was great to see him again recently. This time he brought an amazing surprise. When my dad flew back to Wales in the 70's, he gave Tom his guitar... And he just gave it back to me. A 1957 Fender Musicmaster. I can't believe it. Well I can, because Tom is an absolute gem. Thank you Tommy! To have my dads writing guitar 40+ years later is...can't even explain it.

My dad never talked about his writing process. Once I turned 20 I saw him write constantly. So I never though to ask him about the 70's process as I was enjoying listening to him at the present. He was very humble. He never blew his own horn about the old days. He would always surprise me with a rare story if he caught me listening to The Who or something. Joe Cocker came on the radio and we were hanging out on the porch. "The first time I ever smoked weed, it was handed to me by Joe Cocker" he said. I was blown away. I never knew their paths crossed, let alone hung out etc.

Not everyone was impressed by his technique. Rolling Stone likened his drumming to "basketballs landing in a vat of oatmeal".

"We threw that one away", smiles Gibbins. "It was filler. 
Harry took it to number 1. Mariah Carey did it not too long ago. 
She got to number 1 as well. She just bought me a swimming pool"

My husband was friends with Mike Gibbins and his band (FBM) used to practice at Gibbin's house often. 

My husband is not only a musician, he's a funeral director/embalmer too. (gotta make a living!) 
Long story short, my husband embalmed Mike Gibbins.

My husband can't go into any details of how he died, etc. so I can't say. I think that all has to stay private. 
But he did tell me it was VERY odd to embalm a friend, he's done a few. I do know that he didn't even realize it was Mike Gibbins until he started cleaning him. He did a double take and read the ankle tag again and saw Michael G. At first he just read Gibbins and he didn't make the connection. 
That was in Orlando, over a year ago.
