冒頭で 「今回のレポート課題は、バッドフィンガーがテーマだが、少し広げてパワー・ポップとはなにかということも調査報告してみよう」 と赤岩和美さんが書いているように、よくあるバッドフィンガーを特集したものよりも読み応えがあります。
 
power pop っていつから使われ始めたのか? 僕が最初に聞いたのは The Motors についての説明だった。 赤岩さんの調査によると、1978年の春に発売された雑誌にパワー・ポップの特集があり、そこには power pop という言葉が使われた例が挙げられており、それによると「1977年の9月から10月頃に業界で使われ始めた」らしい。 先日亡くなった
Kim Fowley (July 21, 1939 - January 15, 2015) が1977年10月11日に Power Pop を語っている映像が youtube にあった。 (Tomorrow Show - New Wave Music Discussion from October 11th, 1977)

[Narrator]  Meanwhile, Pete's band-mate and best friend Tommy Evans was slowly falling apart. 
 
[Marianne Evans]  When he died, Tommy didn't have anybody he could talk to, write songs with, his other half was gone so he felt lost and lonely. Many times he said, "I want to be there where he is." Everything went wrong for Tommy as well - tax problems, taxman after him, somebody sued him for five million - so everything just collapsed. 
 
[Beverley Tucker]  Tom tried really hard after Pete died. He kind of tried to make it better, not just for him but for Pete, but they got set back after set back. 
 
[Narrator]  Eight years after Pete's death, Tommy also hanged himself. 
 
[Tag Hall]  I was angry with Tommy when he took his life. Too many people had gone through enough with Peter's death cos you don't tend to bury friends before you're 30. One's...one's bad enough. ................Two's too many.

[Narrator]  It all happened a long time ago but for those who lived through it, the story of Badfinger, the friendships and the music, live on. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]  Now, it's time for a new chapter to be written. On the 20th of August, 2013, Petera gave birth to Pete's first grandchild, who she called Luca William Ham.

[PA]  Today is a really important day for this city. Today is a day we honour one of our sons. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[Narrator]   In April 2013, people from all over the world came to Swansea in South Wales to pay tribute to Pete Ham, an unsung hero of British pop music. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[man]  Today I believe is a long overdue event in Swansea. It's recognising Pete, Pete Ham, and what he did, not only for Swansea but for the music scene in general. 
 
 #no matter what 
 
[PA]  When we unveil the plaque, we'll honour Peter, but we put on record that if you are a kid from Swansea, you can still do something amazing and you can change the world! 
 
[Narrator]  Amongst the guests were Pete's partner Anne and his daughter Petera, who grew up in Glasgow without knowing her father. 
 
[PA]  This is Peter's daughter, Petera. 
 
[Ann Herriot]  It is very emotional for me, especially when I hear the Welsh accent. Petera, my daughter, is unveiling the plaque, which is lovely for me, for her to be doing that. 
 
[Petera Ham-Eddie]  Although I didn't know my dad, I still feel very close to him through all of his music and everything my mum tells me about him. Many people don't get hear things about their father after they go, at least I've got his music and I'm just very, very proud. 
 
[Narrator]  This is the story of Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger.

Last Words Pete Ham
 #timeless 
 
[Narrator]  It was the last straw for Pete. All he'd ever wanted to be was a musician. Now, he felt that everything he and the band had worked for had come to nothing.  He went to see Tommy. 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Bob]  They went for a few drinks at the pub, drowned their sorrows a little bit, I guess. Tommy drove Pete back to his house and Pete got out and said, "Don't worry, mate, I've got a plan. I know what to do. I've got a way out this, don't worry. Bye." 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Bob]  Later on in the morning, there was this panicky phone call from Anne and she spoke to Marianne and Tommy and said, "There's something awful happened, something terrible terrible."   So, Tommy rushed round there and found Peter hanging in the garage. 
 
 #timeless 
 
[Narrator]  Pete was just 27 years old. He left a suicide note which read, "I will not be allowed to love and trust everybody. This is better. PS, Stan Polley is a soulless bastard. I will take him with me." 
 
[Narrator]  Anne returned to her home town of Glasgow and five weeks after Pete's death, she gave birth to their daughter who she called Petera. 
 
[Anne Herriot]  People had said to me after it, "It was terrible what he did, leaving you with the baby." I could never say that. I wish I could but I could never say that about Pete and I know that he wasn't himself when he did that. The doctor had explained to me that his mind had probably just gone. 
 
[Bob]  I understand that Polley, who had actually taken life insurances out on everyone, was trying to cash in a policy on Pete, you know. Even after this terrible event, he was still trying to make money on it somehow, you know.
