 Badfinger  est un groupe de rock gallois fondé à Swansea en 1965 connu d'abord sous le nom de  The Iveys . C'est peu de dire que  Badfinger  est
un groupe maudit. Malgré un indéniable talent mélodique ce groupe gallois n'a jamais connu le succès qu'il aurait pourtant mérité. Disciple des
BeatlesBadfinger  savait composer des chansons tout en finesse.
Groupe maudit parce que 2 de ses membres se sont suicidés à 10 ans d'intervalle. Quelle n'a pas du être la surprise des membres restant
lorsqu'en 1993 une chanteuse inconnue à l'époque (
Mariah Carey )
vendra plus à de 27millions d'exemplaire une de leur chanson
(without you) aussi reprise par un autre méconnu,
Harry Nilsson .
Succès posthume d'un groupe qui aurait mérité un autre destin.
