awesome tab guys- BADFINGER Was a killer band- one of the bands on APPLE records- you can tell the obvious Beatles influence guitars bass drums probably on Vox amps, ??? - the Beatles all too rarely rocked like this - that's why I Like Badfinger, they rocked! and their singer really sounded like Sir Paul.
