Martin H. Samuel - Catch 22 Déjà Vu. Poem (October 11, 2021)

2021/10/11   Martin H. Samuel - Catch 22 Déjà Vu. Poem (Stereo Story # 624) 

Then when auditioning for Badfinger as replacement drummer all those years ago one summer, 
I scored the job, had the gig but then, Pete Ham asked, 
“Do you write songs?” and I lied, when I replied, “No.”
Said he to me, “Oh, that’s a shame,” we really like your beat.” 
How was I to know? So, I composed myself when it dawned on me, from the jaws of victory, 
I had snatched defeat.

4度目のUSツアーの開始1ヶ月前、Mike Gibbins が一時 Badfinger を抜けた時(May - Jul 1972)、オーディションを受けたひとり。 
 
When Badfinger were auditioning for a Mike Gibbins replacement, Martin H. Samuel managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by failing to own up to being a songwriter. He'd been conditioned into believing bands didn't want song-writing drummers so, when asked by Pete Ham, he denied he was skilled in such ways not knowing that they wanted an all-writing band.

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.
