Badfinger covers

バッドフィンガー Badfinger の周辺をいろいろと... Badfinger の曲をカバーした人とか、ちょっと関わった人とか 外周を遠回りに巡ってます


Andy Norris (Joey and Cathy Molland)

Joey:  Kath and I wrote that song at Clearwell Castle. I've got the lyric sheet somewhere!  It was named after the tape op (operator) at Olympic Studios, Andy Morris.  I love  that "…savin all my money…" 

Andy Morris, a 16-year-old tape-op in 1973, told me of how Bowie created ‘Diamond Dogs’ 
Andy Morris (Jan 11, 2016)
Andy Morris, now living in Northwest Portland, was 16 when he was an assistant recording engineer at London’s Olympic Studios. 

     By the time you worked with David Bowie you were a bit of a veteran, aged 16?
I was in the recording studio when the Rolling Stones recorded It’s Only Rock ’N Roll (But I Like It). I remember placing microphones in the toilets downstairs when Jagger and Keith were about to sing the overdubs. I also worked with Badfinger and The Pretty Things, but Diamond Dogs was the album I worked on the most. 

Badfinger performs "Andy Norris" at the Bombay Bicycle Club in Memphis, TN sometime in 1987 (anybody have the exact date?). The band was Joey Molland, Randy Anderson, Mark Healey, and Jerry Shirley. Camera work by Mike Barnett.

at Good Ole Days in Atlanta GA sometime in 88/89 (90/91?). Joey Molland, Mark Healey, Michael Lichey and John Richar​dson.

Phil Chapman     Aug 18, 2003 
Around about this time thirty years ago, I worked as engineer on Badfinger's first Warner Brothers album. Pete was generally down - there were background management issues, and he readily admitted he'd never really got over not having the successful version of their own song "Without You" - "...nobody thought it was a hit". He really tried with "I Miss You", and put a lot of store by it. Tommy, on the other hand, was more pragmatic, after all, they were earning from the song, he thought. Pete's tragic death (and later, Tommy's) really shook me, as I was relatively new to the music business, and had little awareness of the effect it can have on sensitive souls.
