Like all of the rest of you, I heard Badfinger hit the airwaves with a lighthearted vengeance. I was pre and early teen as the hits kept on comin’ for too few years but effortlessly burned into my mental DNA.
For me, each time I hear “No Matter What”, my mind flashes back to a family trip as where driving through West Memphis on our way back home to Phoenix from visiting our family in East Tennessee. Saddened that a fun time with family had come to an end, Badfinger brought a youthful sound of hope and lightheartedness that seemed to help ease the pain of having to say goodbye.
Whenever I have the radio on and Badfinger comes on, I turn it up just a little so that my mind can drift back to 1969 thru 1971 when innocence abounded and I had my whole life ahead of me. And though I more life behind me than ahead of me, Badfinger music still puts a smile on my face.
So it comes as no surprise that it was a genuine thrill to be able to recently chat with the remaining member of Badfinger, Joey Molland, about his new solo album, Be True To Yourself. We talked about the pandemic and its effects on Joey’s touring. More importantly, we chatted about his exciting new music.
I think you’re really going to enjoy this chat so please give it a listen. When you’re finished, click on the album cover on this page and order a copy or three of “Be True To Yourself”. It’s PHENOMENAL!
