[Narrator]  Pete was writing about his life and the way the world was changing around him. Knocking Down Our Home was his response to the urban redevelopment of his hometown of Swansea. 
 
 #knocking down our home 
 
[Narrator]  The song was one of several demos Bill Collins sent to the Beatles' record company, Apple. Paul McCartney heard it and loved it. And The Iveys became the first band signed to Apple. 
 
 #knocking down our home 
 
[Ron]  I suppose you could say it was like all our Christmases coming at once. Of all the labels to get offered a record deal with, Apple. Come on! 
 
 #storm in a teacup 
 
[Narrator]  By the late '60s, music and fashion were changing and Apple felt the band needed a make over, so The Iveys became Badfinger, named after a Beatles song, Badfinger Boogie. To help them along, Paul McCartney gave them a song he'd written for a film called The Magic Christian. 

 #come and get it 

[Narrator]  Next thing they knew, they had a top five hit single and were Top Of The Pops. 
 
 #come and get it 

[Dan Matovina]  Come And Get It on Top Of The Pops, I think that was the peak time for Pete and the rest of the members, the smile, the excitement is written all over their faces. It is pure ecstasy. 
 
 #come and get it 

[Narrator]  But one person didn't make it to Top Of The Pops. Ron Griffiths, who had been with the band from the start and played on Come And Get It, was replaced by Joey Molland. 
 
 #come and get it 

[Ron]  My demise from the band was simply because I was married and it went against the grain. My little boy Jason was in the house, Tommy would put his stereo on in the early hours of the morning and wake the baby up. 
 
 #come and get it 

[Ron]  Maureen, my wife, obviously wasn't best pleased because the baby was being woken up and it seemed as if I was being edged out. I wasn't happy about going, certainly I wasn't.  I came up to live in Hemel Hempstead and ended up doing a production line job at a farm in Hemel, driving to work on a push-bike, 6-2 and 2-10 shift while Come And Get It was in the charts.

One night in 1966, at the Regal Ballroom, Ammanford 字幕02

One night in 1966, at the Regal Ballroom, Ammanford  04:47-07:57 字幕02 
字02
[Narrator]  One night in 1966, at the Regal Ballroom, Ammanford, they met the man who would set them on the road to stardom. 
 
[Ron]  We noticed an elderly gentleman with a moustache and a black corduroy jacket stopped in his tracks, turned round and stared at us. 
 
[Dai]  Then he came to the dressing room and said, "I like what you do, lads." "I really think you are a good band, you could go far." 
 
[Narrator]  Bill Collins became the band manager and took them to London to live with him in his house in Golders Green. 
 
[Dai]  Before we moved away, he had a meeting with all the parents and said that he can't promise anything but hard work and blood, sweat and tears, I think he called it. Churchill's...
 
[Ron]  It was everything it was purported to be in London, at that time. I am so glad I was part of it. It was a struggle to start with in the house because there were two bands living there, he had the Mojos, which occupied part of it, and we were crammed into the loft. We used to sleep on camp beds the first nine or 12 months we were there! 
 
[Narrator]  For two years, the band travelled the country gigging solidly.  Whenever they were more at home at Golders Green, Pete spent every minute in a makeshift studio Bill had put in the house. 
 
[Ron]  It was a sweatbox in there, it was 10x10, a soundproof cube. Pete used to spend most of the night... He did most of his songwriting overnight. 
 
[Dai]  It is incredible what he used to put down, and he used to speed up the guitar solo and slow it down and play it back and it would sound like Pinky and Perky. Always experimenting and looking for something new. 
 
 #down down down 
 
[Dan Matovina]  Literally at the age of 19 and 20, for a year and a half, he created all kinds of mini masterpieces with tonnes of background vocals and it is astounding stuff. No-one at that time of that ilk was doing anything like what Pete Ham was, but he was doing it alone in this room. 
 
[Beverley Tucker]  Pete was very shy when I first met him. It was only after I had known him for a couple of weeks that his sense of humour really came out, which... ..was what drew me to him, really. Pete always found it easier to express his emotions through his music, so if there was a particular situation, maybe we'd had an argument or something, his way of apologising to me or stating his side of the case would be through songs. 
 
 #sille veb 
 
[Narrator]  The hard work was starting to pay off, but there were changes in the air. Dai Jenkins was replaced by Tommy Evans from Liverpool who became Peter's main songwriting partner.

This is the story of Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger.  01:40-04:50 字幕01

[Narrator]  This is the story of Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  In a business where tales of rip-offs and shattered dreams are ten a penny, the story of Badfinger is the stuff of legend. 

 #no matter what 
 
[Deke Leonard]  It is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, I think.
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  In their short time together, Badfinger made some truly great music. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Nicky Bell]  They were a highly respected band from the masters at that time. 
 
 #without you 
 
[Narrator]  The band's leader and creative driving force was Pete Ham. Together with band-mate Tommy Evans, he wrote the classic Without You. 
 
 #without you 
 
[Tag Hall]  Many people I have worked with since, guys who write songs that are very successful, to a man they all say, "I wish I'd have written it." 
 
[Ron]  Most of the stories you ever hear about the band really are all pretty sombre but there was so much good stuff and happiness as well, it wasn't all doom and gloom. 
 
 #joker 
 
[Beverley Tucker]  He kind of felt as though it was his duty to cheer everyone up, be the joker. 

 #joker 
 
[Tag Hall]  He cared as much for people around him, more so than he did for himself. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Narrator]  The band started out in the mid-1960s, they originally called themselves the Iveys after IVEY Place in Swansea where they rehearsed. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Ron]  Peter was born and brought up on Townhill in Swansea. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Deke Leonard]  The Swansea scene was like Liverpool without the record interest. You could play seven nights a week, twice on Sunday if you wanted to, the scene vibrated with energy. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Dai]  We would play all South Wales down to Pembroke, Pembroke town, Haverfordwest up to Cardiff, Newport, up the valleys, then the bigger bands would come in and we would support them. 
 
 #the way you do the things you do 
 
[Dai / Ron]  We supported The Who. The Yardbirds, the Merseybeats. The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd at Swansea University. The only ones we didn't support where the likes of the Beatles and the Stones, I suppose.

作った時、多少バッドフィンガーを意識したと思います。特にサビなんかはトムをきっと意識したと思えます。ちなみに歌詞の方はほとんど口から出まかせです。  (作者の解説)
