24th April 1975, Peter Ham, British singer, songwriter with Badfinger committed suicide by hanging himself in the garage of his Surrey home, aged 27. Ham co-wrote 'Without You', with band mate Tom Evans (who also later committed suicide). The song won an Ivor Novello award...

Maggie Wilson This band were amazing. It has to be the most tragic story in the music business. It gets me every time I hear their music. Blue is the last song you will hear on the last episode of Breaking Bad.
Bruce Haley Without exaggerating, Pete had one of my favorite voices, ever. "Day After Day" is the reason for that. As well as "Baby Blue", "No Matter What", etc.. THAT includes the magnificent vocal harmonies by the other three guys on that song. Goosebumps every time I hear it.
Jim Marchant Wonderful band and songs and wronged by an evil manager and so very tragic end to both Pete Ham and Tom Evans 8 years later. God rest their souls they were a truly fantastic group
David Mabe Gone way too soon. Badfinger was really starting to find their sound when all the legal troubles started. There was so much more music that Pollock robbed the world of.
Sherry Bills-Yarrish Very tragic story of how their manager took their money and just kept breaking their spirit until he couldn't take it anymore!
Kevin Thompson I liked their music then, and have been "re-discovering " it lately. Recently watched a documentary about them. Sad how their manager screwed them, as seems to happen a lot in the music industry. At the top of the charts , yet financially broke.
Craig Kester Badfinger are the dark side of the horrible music industry.. Welcome to the Machine ...
Rona L Peckich Loved Badfinger and Without You - such a tragic turn of events for two talented musicians.
Dean Haas Jr They did the movie "magic Christian" with Ringo Starr, which featured the song 'Come and Get It'.
Nick Buenavista They did the best cover version song of Nilson's "without you"
Lorenzo Alberto Ramirez They should have called themselves Badmanagement..
Ken Nisbet Would have gone on to greatness. Brilliant all round sound. Shafted by a scumbag 'manager'.
Robert Prina The guy 2nd from the right commited suicide not to long after..
Sheila Dass Omg...i never knew young...what a sad this band 💛
Laurie DaSilva I have decided that this all about profit and numbers. It's just a BS page
Michelle Missy Mersereau Another one in the 27 club.
Andrew Baker Pete ham hanged himself in his garage in 1975
Blair McCarthy Do you really need to share the method of suicide?
Mark Williams Tragic story. Magic band.
Wanda Lyn Interesting article
Audrey Hensley
Wilma New It was a sad day for music and his family and fans. RIP. x
Jason Wc They got ripped apparently ?
Ricardo Hinojosa Mi cielo, Laura, para timing, el nuestro... :"(

23rd April 1936, Born on this day, Roy Orbison singer, songwriter, who had a 1964 UK & US No.1 single with ‘Pretty Woman’ plus over 20 US & 30 UK Top 40 singles. With the Traveling Wilburys he had a 1988 UK No.21 single with...

Patricia Mclean Only the lonely. Roy had the most devastating private life. To loose your kids in a house fire then your wife Claudette in a motor cycle accident must have been horrendous for him. Elvis Presley was quoted as saying "Roy Orbison is the best singer in the world" i agree.
Andrew Mikula He had the greatest falsetto and range of any singer of his era, or probably since. Roy's songs and singing are timeless, but Roy the man was considered one of the nicest people one could ever hope to meet...The musicianship was a bonus.
Carol Driscoll In Dreams as I used to listen to this record when courting my husband of 50 years in the early sixties has special memories of those lovely cuddles.
George Launier Can't think of one song of his that wasn't special. One of my favorites was on the B side of Running Scared, "Love Hurts". It was first recorded by the Everly Brothers who also were pretty fantastic.
Wayne Nowak Whatever Roy sang-even on his last album- had that timeless voice-when you hear it-you know there's only one Roy Orbison!!!
David Lillicot I saw Roy in Sydney Australia, with the Rolling Stones and the Newbeats in 1965, and with the Yardbirds and the Walker Brothers in 1967.
Linda Wade Blue Angel was always my favorite. My husband hooked me with that song! Married 43 years. He recently passed away. But that song still makes me smile with beautiful memories. Roy had the most beautiful voice music has ever had!
Pam Kirk In dreams. My mother in laws favourite. After she passed away couldn't listen to it for years. Now ok. And Crying with kd Lang
Linda Wade This isn't fair! Roy fans love every one of his songs! It's impossible to choose one. Unless it is attached to a beautiful memory.
Dmitry Philippov I Drove All Night. And Not Alone Anymore (w/ Traveling Wilburys).
Rori Giles A B S O L U T E L E G E N D. It should be made a crime for anyone other than Roy to sing his songs.
Monte D. Jones Leah has always been my favorite with its haunting music and beautiful lyrics.
John L. Castady Here's a rare shot of Roy w/o his trademark glasses on. Also my favorite tune.
Chuck Dreyer Favorite? Pretty much all of them. Happy Birthday Lefty, Rest In Peace.
Patricia Mclean Penny arcade is the 2nd most requested songs on karioke, after my way.
Georgina Johnson In Dreams. I saw him in 1967 at Festival Hall with Walker Bros and Yardbirds and was mesmerised.
Luisito Quiñones In dreams. I was in seventh grade when he died. Ive listened to oldies since fifth! !!!
Sue Spencer Only the lonely awesome song. Love Roy 👍🤗🎈🎈
Michael Price You got it
Marilyn Crosbie Crying.
Brian Myburgh Roy Orbison.... One of the very best. ❤❤
Tom Spoor Jr. Jeff Spoor Roy Orbison. 👍
Don Riley In dreams or running scared
Kenneth Magnusson Beautiful Lana

Happy birthday to Glen Campbell, born on 22nd April 1936, singer, songwriter, actor, TV presenter. Hits include ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’, ‘Wichita Lineman’, and ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’. As a session musician in the 1960s he worked with Bobby Darin, Ricky Nelson, The Monkees,...

Izzy Burberry Wichita Lineman does it for me. 'And I need you more than want you, and I'll want you for all time' Amazing. Happy Birthday Glen. 💖
Brent Anthonisen The whole "Ghost on the Canvas" album, really. Hard to believe he was almost 75 years old during the recording of it...voice and guitar were still so sharp and the material was tremendous.
James Lemons Wichita Lineman is my favorite. About the time it came out I was a Journeyman Lineman for a rural electric in Indiana. The words to tge song struck true to the job.
Richard Burian He's a great talent for many years. Sadly not all has been good to him health wise. But his impact on the industry is large. Thank you and Happy Birthday Glen
Rob Rainey Interview on the Love Field tarmac prior to their Glenn Campbell show appearance. Tiny Tim was there also.
M.c. Farrell Galveston. Jimmy Webb classic...and just a great homesick and lonely soldier song. Didn't really appreciate it until a lot later...
Debbie Aldridge Happy Birthday Glen Campbell. Such an amazing artist, I have to say my favorites are a tie between Wichita Lineman and Always On My Mind.
Sarah Robinson Happy birthday Mr. Glen Campbell. I love all your music and you are a huge part of my childhood memory. Thank you for so many beautiful songs and performances.
Alvin Garcia Ashley Campbell, daughter of Glen Campbell pays a touching tribute to her dad who is suffering from Alzheimer's. Talent runs in that family. Happy Birthday Glen.
Gary Lynn Clevenger Check out the Glen Campbell documentary on Netflix I'll Be Me
