Biography Picture     The Badger was co-founded by keyboardist Tony Kaye after he left Yes, with David Foster. Foster had been in The Warriors with Jon Anderson before Anderson co-founded Yes. Foster later worked with Yes on "Time and a Word". Kaye had worked on a solo project by Foster that was never released.

   The pair found drummer Roy Dyke, formerly of Ashton, Gardner & Dyke, and Dyke suggested Brian Parrish on guitar. Badger's first release was the live album, "One Live Badger". In the progressive rock genre, five of the songs were co-written by the whole band, with a sixth by Parrish.

     By 1974, the band had been reduced to Kaye and Dyke. They recruited bassist, Kim Gardner, who had worked with Dyke in Ashton, Gardner & Dyke. Paul Pilnick, formerly of Stealers Wheel, joined on guitar, as did singer Jackie Lomax. During this period, they released one LP, "White Lady". All ten songs were written or co-written by Lomax.

     However, before the album's release, the Badger had split into two factions, with Lomax and Gardner leading a short-lived band called "White Lady", before Lomax returned to a solo career.
