Evans of Liverpool, England was born on June 5, 1947. He
bought his first guitar after seeing The Beatles at the Cavern
Club. His first group was called The
Inbeateens (also: The Inbeats). After they broke up, he
formed The Calderstones in 1966. The Iveys saw them perform in
July of 1967 and asked him if he was interested in
songwriting. Soon afterward, Tommy was recording a demo on The
Iveys' tape machine and he was joining their group, replacing
David Jenkins. Tommy remained until the end of Badfinger in
April 1975. After Pete Ham's death, he joined the
Dodgers in Late 1975 with Badfinger
keyboardist Bob Jackson, and eventually reunited with Joey
Molland, creating a "new" Badfinger in 1978. After splitting
up with Joey in 1981, he continued with the "new" Badfinger
("Goodfinger" at one point) with Bob Jackson and Mike Gibbins
until his death in 1983. After the group became broke again,
he attempted a solo career, recording songs with friend Rod
Roach until he took his own life on November 19, 1983.
