Originally known as THE WILD ONES they changed their name to THE IVEYS in late '64.
By early '68, The Iveys' popularity was growing. In March '68, The Beatles' roadie and friend Mal Evans caught an Iveys show and was floored by them. He obtained some of their demos and took them to The Beatles' newly formed Apple Records in which various parties were interested, Paul McCartney for one. The Iveys were signed in the summer of '68. They recorded tracks in which the Tommy Evans tune, Maybe Tomorrow, was released as a single in the fall of '68. The single peaked at #67 in early '69.
In the fall of '69, The Iveys were encouraged to change their name in which they did. They renamed themselves BADFINGER (after Bad Finger Boogie - the working title for The Beatles tune With A Little Help From My Friends).
