Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

An article on the tragic demise of Badfinger. I didn't realize that two songs I really like such as Day After Day were by them.

I posted this in another thread, but it fits here to so HA!

Been listening to this one a lot lately.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I loved Badfinger - had all their albums, and 'Without You' is just awesome.  I remember I was upset when I went to see Bangladesh in the cinema and they didn't sing anything.

Obituary in the Guardian, mentioning Lomax had finished an album before his passing. Also, I didn't know Terry Richardson is his stepson.

Am thinking about buying some old JT vinyls and vhs tapes over the net, and was doing some research.  Came across the following snippets in the James Taylor article in Wikipedia:

Taylor decided to try being a solo act and a change of scenery. In late 1967, funded by a small family inheritance, he moved to London, living variously in Notting Hill, Belgravia, and Chelsea.[29] He recorded some demos in Soho and, capitalizing on Kortchmar's connection to The King Bees (who once opened for Peter and Gordon), took the demos to Peter Asher, who was A&R head for The Beatles' newly formed label Apple Records.[30] Asher showed the demos to Paul McCartney, who later said, "I just heard his voice and his guitar and I thought he was great ... and he came and played live, so it was just like, 'Wow, he's great.'"[30] Taylor became the first non-British act signed to Apple.[30] Living chaotically in various places with various women, Taylor wrote additional material, including "Carolina in My Mind", and rehearsed with a new backing band.[31] Taylor recorded what would become his first album from July to October 1968 at Trident Studios, at the same time The Beatles were recording The White Album.[31][32] McCartney and an uncredited George Harrison guested on "Carolina in My Mind", whose lyric holy host of others standing around me referred to the Beatles, while the title phrase of Taylor's "Something in the Way She Moves" provided the lyrical starting point for Harrison's classic "Something"

and this, showing how cool Paul is:

Apple Corps itself had fallen into chaos, with anarchic business planning and freeloaders taking advantage of it in every direction.[37] In early 1969, to clean up the situation, three of the Beatles brought in Allen Klein, who began purging Apple personnel.[38] Asher did not like Klein; he resigned of his own accord and offered to manage Taylor, to which Taylor agreed.[39] Klein wanted to hit Taylor with a $5-million lawsuit for leaving,[40] but McCartney (a Klein antagonist), and then the other Beatles, overruled him on the grounds that artists should not be holding each other to contracts.[39]

So Paul had a big influence in getting JT's career started, and the Beatles connection is deeper than just that.  Thought you all might be interested...

 

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes
