Based on the tragic, infuriating & true story of the British band Badfinger,
using titles from their songs & albums (in italics above).
Their American business manager, Stan Polley
(4-7-22 to 7-20-09), grossly mismanaged their careers
& channeled almost all of their earnings into his own pockets. He was never held accountable.
Badfinger was the most "successful" group on The Beatles' Apple record label,
selling millions, yet they never saw their rightful earnings, thanks to Polley.
Pete Ham
(4-24-75) & Tom Evans (11-19-83), both in financial, career & spiritual ruin & despair, committed suicide,
cutting short their talented, brilliant & promising lives:

Adding the proverbial insult to injury, Harry Nilsson (1972) is often mistakenly given credit for writing Without You,
including by Mariah Carey on American Idol (2013) after her having sold 30+ million copies with her 1994 cover version:

1995: ASCAP awarded Without You for airplay, ceremoniously crediting & paying
Joey Molland, Mike Gibbins & Brit manager Bill Collins
as well as the estates of the only writers of Without You, Ham & Evans:

Starting as a parody of Polly ( aka Cracker ) as performed by Nirvana, a new melody was created.
