Brando's Features: B.A.S.

This page last updated on August 3, 1998

Seventeen years ago an individual named Mark Vander Boegh attempted to capture the imagination of Badfinger fans everywhere with an exciting, up to the minute fan club letter based in Kentucky. One issue of the fan club letter was produced and issued in mid April 1981. Some folks report never receiving an issue of the ill-fated newsletter. Many new fans (and old) have never seen what may be the original attempt at a Badfinger fanzine (If there was one prior to this let us all know). I scanned the document and ran the pages as part of a feature in the spring of 1998. They are back for a short time. Enjoy!

Well, If you collected (saved to your computer) all five pages from this feature you will have, in essence, the Badfinger Appreciation Society's only newsletter. I may eventually have to either remove or ZIP the files for you to access. So for now, if you would like a copy, make sure to print each page and staple together. For your information: Page 1 is a picture which is featured in Matovina's book on page 344. Page 2 is a letter from Mr. Vander Boegh to Badfinger fans. Page 3 is the press sheet for the Say No More LP. Page 4 contains articles that appeared in Billboard Magazine. Page 5 has 3 letters from fans and a review of the Ass LP taken (I believe) from Rolling Stone.
