Default Badfinger

Has anyone read the biography of Badfinger, " Without You: The Tragic Story of Badfinger"? If so, what was your take on it. I'm wanting to read more about them.

It's a really informative book that doesn't sanitize things, for better or worse. You get firsthand insight on situations that were fairly uncomfortable, but at the same time, everybody besides Pete Ham comes across as kind of an a-hole. There were a lot of terrible situations and misfortune outside the band's control, but they also brought a lot of their problems on themselves, both directly and indirectly. So if you keep in mind that it's a very warts-and-all read (especially concerning Joey Molland), it's well worth it. Just don't expect to come out of it with a positive view of the band members.

Thanks for the answer. What I've read so far about them on the internet shows them as having a sad history, at least in my opinion.

Couldn't any of the Fab Four help these guys, since they were signed to the Apple Record.
