Residents and visitors to the South Fork may know that both John Lennon and Paul McCartney have spent time here, the latter an annual visitor to his house in Amagansett. Another member of the Beatles’ orbit, Peter Brown, who worked for their manager, the late Brian Epstein, has long summered in East Hampton. Yet another of the extended Fab Four family will come as close as Riverhead on Saturday at 8 p.m., when Joey Molland, the guitarist and last surviving member of Badfinger, brings the power-pop legends to the Suffolk Theater. Badfinger, they of classics including “Come and Get It,” “Day After Day,” “No Matter What,” “Baby Blue,” and “Without You,” signed to the Beatles’ label, Apple Records, in 1968. While the latter song was a huge hit for Harry Nilsson and the others remain staples of classic-rock radio, the group suffered almost unimaginable bad luck, gravely wounded by unscrupulous management and a disorganized record label, which the Beatles birthed amid their own disintegration.“We do the hits and a selection of other Badfinger songs,” Mr. Molland, who lives in Minnesota, said last week. “We might do one new song, but it’s really a Badfinger show.” The band now features Mark Healey, who joined in 1987, on bass; Mike Ricciardi, a decade-long member, on drums, and Gregg Inhofer, who played on Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks” album, on piano and guitar.
