rockin'on 1984年2月号 Hot News page:55 8年前、バッドフィンガーのピーター・ハムが自殺したことは、知る人ぞ知ってるかもしれないが、今度はトム・エバンズが首つり自殺をした。原因はさだかではないが、最近彼は、ピーター・ハムと共作した「ウィズアウト・ユー」の印税のいざこざで裁判所通いをしていたという。
Mike の死亡時にも僕が何か関与していないかと考えたけど、死の3年前に Mike のサイトからCDを3枚買って おまけにTシャツをもらったこと以外、なにもなかった。

– Many seem not to know you were in BADFINGER, together with YES and BADGER Tony Kaye. Was it him who brought you in?
No. I can't remember exactly who hired me, probably the producer, but I can't remember who that was. Basically I was hired as a session musician to play drums on their album. What I do remember is that I enjoyed working with them. I knew Tommy Evans and I was sad to hear of his death. He was a nice guy.
Badfinger / Finest Moments
A Memorial to Pete Ham, Tom Evans and Mal Evans
BADFINGER Finest Moments (One of the rarest official items available on Apple, this is the withdrawn 1989 Australian only 16-track 'Best Of' LP that ended up with just ten copies pressed for review purposes. According to The Apple Log book, the album was assembled by someone from EMI who wanted a 'Best of' Badfinger LP. Because of ongoing legal problems that Apple were having at the time, the project was scrapped even before any sleeves were printed, just a 12" insert printed on greenpaper, declaring the album to be 'A Memorial To Pete Ham, Tom Evans And Mal Evans'. All tracks are from master tapes except 'Without You' which was clearly taken from vinyl. The insert sheet is near 'as new' & the vinyl near mint - this copy originally came directly from a senior executive at EMI Australia SAPCOR28). £1,995.00
