Badfinger was a rock band formed in Swansea, Wales in the early 1960’s who became one of the earliest representatives of the post-60s power pop genre. During the early 1970s the band was at times tagged as the heir apparent to The Beatles, partly because of their close working relationship with them and partly because of their similar sound. The band had four consecutive worldwide hit songs and contributed “Without You,” a Number One Billboard hit for Harry Nilsson which was covered by hundreds of artists. Badfinger’s two principally-known singers and songwriters, Pete Ham and Tom Evans committed suicide in 1975 and 1983. Download.
