HB Mike Gibbins

Celebrating Mike's birthday today. Do I need to tell you he was the drummer for Badfinger? If you don't know Badfinger you really need to check them out. Great, great band!

Pete Ham's Birthday

Four days ago I was remembering Pete Ham on the anniversary of Pete Ham. Today is his birthday, just four days after he took his own life. The business side of the music industry failed Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger. The story is tragic and is a cautionary tale even in today's music business landscape.

Is there anything we can do to protect the artistry of music?

Happy Birthday, Pete.
Wish you were here.

It's Mike's birthday...let the party begin!

For those of you not in the know, Mike was the drummer for the iconic band, Badfinger. He was also a fantastic husband and father.

This is a beautiful must-watch video (where you can actually see Mike behind the drums) when they were still The Iveys and just signed by the Beatles to their Apple label. If you're not moved by this performance you don't have a pulse.
