Without You

Let’s listen to Badfinger.

Badfinger – Without You – Television 1972

Two writers of the song, Ham and Evans, later committed suicide due to legal and financial issues. In Evans’ case, it was a dispute over songwriting royalties for “Without You” that precipitated his action. Songwriting royalties had become the subject of constant legal wrangling for Evans, and In 1983, following an acrimonious argument with his bandmate Joey Molland over the royalties for the song, Evans hanged himself.

Is that true?
