High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Badfinger was a rock band formed in Swansea, Wales in the early 1960s 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. After Badfinger's recording contract with Apple lapsed, band members entrusted their financial affairs to American businessman Stan Polley. Echoing the Beatles' own story, internal squabbling, artistic differences and alleged financial mismanagement ensued and eventually led to the bands' demise. Subsequent attempts to reform Badfinger at various times over the following decade floundered, due in large part to the earlier suicides of Pete Ham and Tom Evans, the band's main creative force.
