Original Badfinger member, Joey Molland, has never not celebrated the Beatles so by the time major international cities had begun celebrating the band's 50th anniversary of when they first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 7, Molland had already gotten the party started. In the summer, he headined International Beatlesweek in his native Liverpool and he appears frequently at The Fest For Beatles Fans. He played on George Harrison's All Things Must Pass and at the famous Concert for Bangladesh and added his unique brand of magic to John Lennon's Imagine.

But with Badfinger, Molland had his own string of hits: "Come And Get It", "No Matter What", "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue" which, recently rediscovered by AMC's Executive Producer, Vince Gilligan, recently appeared in the finale of the popular series Breaking Bad.

Molland's 4th solo album, 'Return to Memphis' echoes his appearance in the short film, From Liverpool to Memphis, on which the singer/songwriter/guitarist expresses his admiration for both music meccas. The album, recorded at Royal Studios, was overseen by Stax Records icon Carl "Blue" Wise (Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zant). In his career, Molland has also worked with other luminaries: engineer/producers: Mal Evans, Geoff Emerick and Todd Rundgren.

Stay on the alert so you don't miss this upcoming rare live performance of Joey Molland's Badfinger as they showcase their impeccable bass lines and swooning melodies, which are sure to assuage the senses.
