In 1977/8 I was in a great power pop band from Detroit, called Straight Up. We had a big break with two regional hits that did well in Canada and the UK, "For You" and "Oh Yeah," that I wrote and sang, and I also managed the band.

I was looking for a producer for the LP we were recording in 1979, and brought in Joey Molland from Badfinger to write with me as well as produce our band. We soon cut the power-pop single "She's My Girl." 
After this Joe invited us to Los Angeles to produce and co-write with me and John Thomas. Around this same time, I got calls from both Mike Gibbins and Tom Evans, also from Badfinger, who were both fans of Straight Up. In late 1981, Mike Gibbins joined Straight Up and moved from Wales to Detroit to live with me, in our Royal Oak home. 
In early 1982 Badfinger's Tom Evans also joined the band and moved in at the same time. Tom wanted Joe to join the new band called The Twisters in early 1982. 
Tommy really loved Joey Molland and wanted him to do the Badfinger World Tour 1982. 
I wanted Joey to join our band, however, he was working on a film at the time with Paul Hogan on the movie, Crocodile Dundee in 1982. 
Instead, management decided to reform Badfinger with me and Tom singing lead.

Liverpool's original Cavern Club could have been saved claims a new book 
Former club manager Debbie Greenberg has written her 'Inside Story' 
   by  Catherine Jones (October 14, 2016) 

 
Liverpool's original Cavern Club could have been saved according to a new book penned by former owner Debbie Greenberg. 
 
Cavern Club: The Inside Story gives readers an insight into the legendary venue after it was reopened in 1966 – when Debbie's dad, the late Alf Geoghegan, took over the helm. 
 
One regular group was The Iveys. 
Debbie recalls: “We nurtured them from young boys. Bill Collins, who was their manager, was Lewis Collins' father, and he and my dad were great friends. “Dad would give them gigs and then bring them home, where they'd have fish and chips and he'd let them sleep in the front room. “One night they brought Kris Kristofferson with them. I didn't know who he was.” 
 
“Paul (McCartney) mentioned he was producing a record by the Iveys at Apple Studios called Come and Get It, the theme tune for the film Magic Christian. 
“These were the boys that had bedded down in our front room many times. Paul said he was thinking of changing their name to Finger. 
“‘Ooh, that's bad,’ said dad. ‘Bad, Badfinger,’ Paul mused. ‘That's great, thanks Alf!’” 
 
 
 
 Debbie Greenberg - The former manager of the Cavern Club has released a book about the historic music venue
