Biography

Natural Gas were a rock band featuring Peter Wood, Joey Molland, Mark Clarke and Jerry Shirley. They released one album, Natural Gas, produced by Felix Pappalardi, in 1976.

Joseph (“Joey”) Charles Molland (born June 21, 1947, Liverpool, England) is a composer and rock guitarist whose recording career spans four decades. He is probably best known as a member of Badfinger. Molland left Badfinger in late 1974 due to disagreements over management. In 1975, he joined with Jerry Shirley (formerly of Humble Pie) and formed a group called Natural Gas. The band released the LP Natural Gas on Private Stock Records in 1976, and enjoyed a successful tour with Peter Frampton the following year. According to Molland, a general lack of organization led to the band’s demise late in 1977. Molland and former Badfinger band mate Tom Evans recorded two albums under the Badfinger name, “Airwaves” in 1978, and “Say No More” in 1981. Molland and Evans split acrimoniously after Say No More and the two performed in rival touring Badfinger bands until Evans’ death in 1983. Most of Molland’s career since 1983 has been with various groups performing tours under the Badfinger name, or as “Joey Molland’s Badfinger.” Earlier versions of these groups sometimes included original Badfinger drummer Mike Gibbins. Molland’s solo recordings have been relatively sporadic. His first, “After The Pearl,” was released in 1984 on Earthtone Records. His second, “The Pilgrim,” was released in 1992 on Rykodisc. His third, “This Way Up,” was independently released in 2001.
