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.

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. 


G'night for now, 
Old Al Kooper

May Pang has been in and out of my life for the past 30 years. Our friendship began with John Lennon and Badfinger and, continues to this day.

May Pang
   “Lou had the same manager as Badfinger, and I met Lou through working for ABKCO and Apple. What was great about ABKCO was that I got to work in the publishing division—with people who wrote the songs I grew up with and shaped my world. And then I got to meet some of them, like Lou! We all hung out: Badfinger and Lou and me.” 
 
 
May Pang は、Pete の自殺の3日前に Pete や Tom と久しぶりに会って一緒に食事をしたらしいけど、その時の様子を they looked different, especially Pete… their look of worry changed their [appearance]. と語っている。
