I used to have between 10 and 12 Pounds a week more in my pocket then than I do now. At
the moment Badfinger are busy paying off back debts which have built up. So far we
have got nothing out of having a hit. But we´re not worried.
Next to Paul McCartney he ( Tom´s English teacher ) he was my biggest inspiration at the time.
He sent me a Christmas card last year. And I was knocked out that he remembered me!
I used to sing my songs to him and he used to write them down for me.
I realise it´s inevitable that we are going to be labelled the next teeny-bopper attraction. But
at least it´s good that the fans have found something they want to dig. Most groups are
progressing so much today that one wonders where they´re all going to end up.
Paul is so natural. He´s still as Beatle-ish as the Beatles ever were. He´s stuck with life, whereas
Lennon has moved on. He was the local hero at home. We both lived on a prefab estate
at Knowsley. But I never dreamed then that I´d end up working with him like this.
Whatever happens we desperately want one of our numbers to be our next hit single.
I wrote it ( Maybe Tomorrow ) about a girl I knew back home. She was the only girl I was
ever crazy about. We met at a ballroom date, and it was really love at first sight. But it´s
funny how life changes you.
