Biography

RockBoar.com Picture     About year after Badfinger had disbanded, due to the death of Pete Ham, Bob Jackson and Tom Evans had gathered musicians for a new band that eventually was named The Dodgers.

    They got a contract with Island Records and their first single "Don't Let Me Be Wrong" was released in April. Their second single was released on Island Records; "Just Want to Love You" . This single too failed to chart and soon after the recordings drummer Dave Powell left the band. He was replaced by Bob Jackson's old friend Paul Hooper.

    After the release of their third Island single "Down"  they were persuaded by Clive Banks to leave Island Records and look for another label. The got a contract with Polygram. Some of the people around the band thought Tom Evans was not good for the band. In in middle of 1977 Tom Evans was kicked out to be replaced by Roger Lomas. The Dodgers now finished album "Love On The Rebound" . Though especially the title-track on the album sounded like it had great commercial potentials, none of these records received any commercial success.

    Bob Jackson probably preferred to stick to the style he had experienced with Badfinger.
