Badfinger: They started as The Iveys, in Swansea, Wales. By the late 1960s they were a corollary to the then-successful Hollies. They later turned against the Iveys: it sounded dated and there were a few other bands with similar choices. In 1968 they signed with Apple, The Beatles' record company, and realised it was "now or never" to change their name before releasing Paul McCartney's song Come And Get It: the Macca connection made it a guaranteed hit, and after that a change would be out of the question.
On John Lennon's suggestion, they considered The Prix and Glass Onion, after his song of this name (cf Glass Onion). In the end though, they passed on the suggestions of a genius to go with Apple boss Neil Aspinal. He suggested a reference to Bad Finger Boogie, an early working title of With A Little Help From My Friends. Lennon had played a demo version of this song with his middle finger, after hurting a forefinger. This makes more sense than earlier reports that it was an obscure blues record Aspinal had heard - nobody involved in that version seemed to have any idea who recorded it anyway. Either way, Badfinger initially struck the group as ridiculous but they couldn't think of anything better ... and the record was about to be pressed. They'd been given a name and a Top Five song: few artists are as lucky.
The luck didn't last: after a split in 1981, for two years the rival factions both ran bands called Badfinger. The story ended with a second suicide among the musicians.
