Marquee Club Programme January 1968
One day, Bill Collins contacted Mal, telling him of a gig his young Iveys were playing at the Marquee club in London. Mal went down to check it out, bringing Apple Record's potential new A&R head, Peter Asher. The date was January 25, 1968.    Without You: The Tragic Story of Badfinger  by Dan Matovina 
 
They were playing at the Marquee Club in London's Wardour Street when Mal Evans brought Apple's A&R man along to have a listen. Peter Asher wasn't exactly inflamed with enthusiasm over The Iveys in concert but Evans became an instant devotee. Mal asked Bill for some tapes of the group to play to Paul McCartney.    The Longest Cocktail Party  by Richard DiLello

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
BADFINGER Finest Moments (One of the rarest official items available on Apple, this is the withdrawn 1989 Australian only 16-track 'Best Of' LP that ended up with just ten copies pressed for review purposes.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 SAPCOR 28).

Bill Harry / The Paul McCartney Encyclopedia (2002)

Bill Harry - The Paul McCartney Encyclopedia
Badfinger 

A group who were to become the most successful group on the Apple label, next to the Beatles. They were originally called the Iveys and were managed by Bill Collins, father of actor Lewis Collins, who had once worked with Mike McCartney in a Liverpool hairdressing salon. Bill had also known Paul's father Jim McCartney from the days he played in dance bands in Liverpool. Mal Evans, who also knew Collins, invited him to a Beatles recording session for 'Within You, Without You'. At Abbey Road Studios, Collins met Paul and told him about his group the Iveys. Paul said he'd be interested in hearing more about them. 

Collins didn't follow through on the invitation. However, when Evans heard that the group wrote their own music he took a tape of them to Apple. 

They comprised two members from Liverpool and two from Wales and the line-up at the time was: Pete Ham, vocalist, guitarist, pianist; Tom Evans, rhythm guitarist; Mike Gibbons, bass guitarist and Ron Griffiths on drums

Mike Berry, who had recently joined Apple Publishing from Sparta Music, actually knew the group and had wanted to sign them to Sparta the previous year. He said, 'I remember telling my Apple publishing partner, Terry Doran, that the Iveys were going to be our first signing. I had actually given Paul McCartney my personal Iveys demo tape, but Paul said he didn't see anything in it. I'd planned to get him another one in the near future.' 

Evans brought in the new tape and played it to Paul, Derek Taylor and Peter Asher. 

Paul phoned Berry and said, 'Have you heard the new Iveys tape? It's fucking great.' Mike said, 'That's the sign of a good publisher, Paul. To see it before anyone else does.' 

Paul had been impressed by a number called 'Knocking Down Our Home' and wanted to hear more of their work, so another demo reel was brought in. There were a few problems. Each Apple signing had to be approved by all four members of the Beatles, although Paul had managed to get Mary Hopkin signed, George had decided to sign up Jackie Lomax and Peter Asher was determined to sign James Taylor -all without necessarily having all four Beatles agree. Asher was to say, 'John Lennon was scathing about everybody. He would say "Who needs James Taylor or the Iveys when you have true artists like Yoko Ono?"' 

Mal Evans was determined to secure a contract for them with Apple and brought in a fourth tape and on 23 July 1968 they signed to the label and made their debut with a Tom Evans composition 'Maybe Tomorrow'. 

In the meantime, Paul had been asked to write the score for a film The Magic Christian which starred Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr. 

At the time the Beatles were busy recording Abbey Road, He arranged a meeting with the Iveys saying that he had been asked to write the music for the film and was willing to give them a song he had written for it for them to record. The number was 'Come And Get It' and Paul made a demo of the number for them to listen to and he recorded them performing it. He then asked them to take over the assignment for The Magic Christian and write the other numbers themselves - and he also recorded them in the studio, advising them and playing some of the instruments. One of the numbers, 'Crimson Ship', contained references to Paul and the Beatles. 

Prior to the release it was felt that the Iveys had become too associated with the Merseyside scene and a new name was sought. They thought of names such as Hyena's Nose, the Old, the Glass Onion and Fresh, while Paul suggested Home and John Lennon suggested Prix. 

Eventually, Mal Evans remembered 'Badfinger Boogie', a working title for Paul's composition 'With A Little Help From My Friends' and the group were dubbed Badfinger. 

Gibbons had left the band, so Evans then took over on bass. They had to find a replacement. The members wanted Scottish guitarist Hamish Stuart of Marmalade to join them and Stuart was interested, but his manager insisted that they would have to pay £10,000 if he was to leave Marmalade, so they looked elsewhere and eventually settled on another Liverpool guitarist, Joey Molland.

Many years later, Hamish Stuart was to join Paul's band. 

Despite the success of their hits 'Come And Get It', 'No Matter What', 'Day After Day' and 'Baby Blue', Apple were encountering problems with the advent of Allen Klein. Paul was absent from the offices and had gone to Scotland where he was to begin recording his solo album; Peter Asher left the company, as did his signing James Taylor. Mary Hopkin was also to leave Apple. 

On leaving Apple, Badfinger suffered immense financial difficulties, despite writing the international hit 'Without You' and both Pete Ham and Tom Evans were to hang themselves.

英米で今話題を集めているグループを総点検    東郷かおる子 
 
ところで最近イギリスの人がアメリカで受け、アメリカの人がイギリスで受けるなんて現象があるが、さしづめナチュラル・ガスなんてのは前者の例ですな。元ハンブル・パイ、元バッドフィンガーなんて人達がゾローッと集まって出来上がったバンドで、デビュー・アルバムを、フェリックス・パッパラルディーがプロデュースしている。形としては丁度バッド・カンパニーのデビュー当時風で、さほど派手なこともやらず、地道に堅実に音を創り上げている所は好感が持てる。このハード・ロック全盛時代に、ウロチョロとハード・ロックをやっていない所が又いいヨ。アメリカではセールス面で、あと一歩伸び悩んでいるらしいが、体制をととのえて次作で勝負に出るにちがいない。

Mark Clarke Interview 1997
 
You did the NATURAL GAS album with Jerry Shirley and a few others. That was a bit of lighter than previous stuff.
Mark Clarke: Yes, it was totally left field, really. It was something I wanted to do. 
 
Who instigated the whole project, was it yours ?
Mark Clarke: Yes, it was my project originally.
Joey Molland (the guy from Badfinger ) and I had been friends for years. I was planning to do a solo album, and Joey suggested that he was, so we said "let's get together!", and we did.

Joey Molland
 
 "We were just talking and having a laugh and I asked him, 'What are you doing?' He said, 'I’m going up to Jerry Shirley’s this weekend. I’m going to stay there and we’ll probably have a jam – why don’t you come with us.' I didn’t really know Jerry, but I thought it would be cool. So Mark calls him and Jerry says. 'Come on up.' We go on up to Jerry Shirley’s house. "  "We had a lot of fun, just playing rock ‘n’ roll songs and blues songs. The next morning Mark, Jerry and myself decided to put a band together.  "

 "We also got a keyboardist, a guy named Dave Kafinetti from the band Rare Bird. He went on to be the keyboard player in 'Spinal Tap'. What a knockout guy!" Kafinetti was replaced before the recording of the album by Peter Wood who co-wrote 'Year of the Cat' with Al Stewart." 
 
 "Felix was really nice, a real sociable guy and talented fellow. As far as a producer went, we really wanted Mal Evans to do it. But the label wanted Felix Papalardi, the bass player from Mountain who’d done Cream and all that – the label wanted him to do it. Apparently Felix wanted to do the project as well, so that was that. I think Mal was pretty disappointed actually."

In 1975, you formed Natural Gas. Why this band lasted for so short time? 

We came to America and went on tour and unfortunately for all of us, we got involved in some drugs and I think that was the main factor. That’s the reason we got out of control and the band broke up about a year and a half later. It had nothing to do with the personalities in the band, I really put that all down to the drugs. 

 
Dan Matovina:   Without You
After the tour (during July, August, and September, 1976), Shirley, Clarke, and Wood found apartments in New York City. They were quite content to situate there, but Joey wanted to stay in Los Angeles. The band broke up.
 
Billboard   (Jan. 8, 1977)
Joey Molland has departed Natural Gas to re-form Badfinger.  Les Nichol, who played with Leo Sayer, replaces him.
