Badfinger

Comments Off on The Free Bird Project: Badfinger

Their name would seem to make them a natural for this segment, but DI was still happily surprised when we came across this shot of Badfinger setting birds to flight. This is a band we love inordinately, a band whose members’ birthdays we’ve celebrated, a band whose losses we continue to mourn – the world really is a lesser place without Pete Ham, Mike Gibbins and Tom Evans. If the legend of their start as a handpicked group for The Beatles’ newly formed Apple Records isn’t enough to spark one’s interest (if you’re not already as smitten as us), then dive into No Dice (1970) and Straight Up (1971) and discover why this band has been such a blueprint for SO many others. But we also like that they weren’t too nice to raise a middle finger if the spirit took them.
