Replacement drummer for Mike Gibbins (Spring 1972) 
Stu Boy King (The Dictators 1973-75) was interviewed by Ugly Things magazine in in 2015.
He somehow got acquainted with Stan Polley. Polley hooked him up with Badfinger. Stu Boy was living in Bandfinger's recording studio for a period of time and the band seemed interested in hiring him as a drummer. They backed off because of potential visa/travel complications.

Punk #11 1977
(1973) The Dictators put out ads and auditioned drummers and chose Stu Boy King, mostly because he had a nice set of drums and a rich millionaire detective father. 
Martin H. Samuel 
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.

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
