RICK WAKEMAN

For A Very Special Rendition Of The Paul McCartney-Penned Hit “COME & GET IT!”

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

 

The most successful recording act signed to The Beatles' label - APPLE RECORDS - and what is considered their 'original' lineup of PETE HAM, TOMMY EVANS, MIKE GIBBINS and JOEY MOLLAND who joined in late 1969 when 'The Iveys' transformed into Badfinger. They interacted in various ways with each member of The Beatles, including their solo careers.

Paul McCartney wrote & produced the band's first single - "Come & Get It". Joey & Tommy played acoustic guitars on John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" & "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier, Momma" on his Imagine LP. Pete & Tommy lended backup vocals on Ringo Starr's "It Don't Come Easy". And the entire original Badfinger lineup contributed to George Harrison's landmark triple-LP set, "All Things Must Pass" and the equally groundbreaking fundraising event, The Concert For Bangla Desh.

Top 10 hits worldwide include: "Come & Get It", "No Matter What", "Day After Day", "Baby Blue" and "Without You" - which was covered by both Nilsson (1972) and Mariah Carey (1994) which both went to #1.

Joey Molland’s Badfinger has been experiencing quite the career revival recently with artists ranging from indie rock icon Matthew Sweet to Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson participating in exciting new versions of Badfinger’s extensive catalog of hits. And now comes one of the biggest hits Molland & company ever recorded - the Paul McCartney-penned pop classic “Come & Get It” reinvented here with a superb contribution from famed piano/keyboard player Rick Wakeman! With Wakeman’s special touch, this tune takes on a whole new life with added melody and bounce, and although Badfinger guitarist/bassist Tom Evans originally sang lead on the 1969 version, Molland ably takes over vocal duties.
