The Bystanders, as they were then, became the jamming, drug-oriented band Man.A still unimpressed Joey Molland quit Badfinger the end of the tour, giving new significance to his.The same could not be said about other players in the Badfinger story.In the early morning of April 24, 1975, Pete Ham committed suicide by hanging himself in the garage of his home. Given that Oasis, for one, achieved superstardom with the same basic building blocks, Badfinger can claim to have had a raw deal. The singer-songwriter had faced struggles to attain success. 982 likes. But Bill Collins – who, Molland later insisted, believed his friend wanted to manage the group in his stead – was against the idea.
