Badge_ The Story?

Postby EddieV » Wed May 12, 2010 12:23 pm

We all know the story about Here Comes The Sun, George sitting EC´s garden etc.

What about badge?

I know it was written by Eric Clapton and George, but is there a story behind it?? Did George ever play on a version of it???

It sounds a lot like the sound of Abbey Road or am I wrong??

George is playing rhythm guitar on it and they did it together on the early 90s Japan tour (sadly not on the album).

I'd also like to know the story if anybody knows it.

Also think Eric should have done it at Concert for George.

George wrote out the lyrics to the song. He scribbled the word "bridge" above the lyrics to the bridge. Eric thought that it read "badge" and the rest is history. Pretty funny story.

Supposedly, when Ringo heard the line "I told you not to wander 'round in the dark", he chimed in with, "I told 'bout the swans that they live in the park."
Not sure where I read that, but I think it was in I, Me, Mine.
