Thomas 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 Inbeatweens. 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 1976 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.
