It was back in the late 50’s when I would be going along every week to the Glanmor Club. Maurice Levenson, who was better known as Schmoo to everyone was one of the driving forces getting the club going along with Swansea musicians, Derek Morgan, Russ Jones and John Ham
 
"I remember watching John Ham playing trumpet in his RAF uniform when home on leave!  The local musicians would be the backbone of the club and would be joined by guest musicians."

John Ham Sound Studio Limited は1977年4月27日(Peteの30歳の誕生日)に設立。
閉鎖されたのが2004年3月16日で、その年の暮れに 1964 Gibson SG Standard guitar がオークションに出されている。70年代80年代にここで Pete が使っていたギターを見せてもらったという人もいるようなので、Pete のギターの管理も兼ねていたんでしょうね。
 
John Ham Music Shop: The music shop was situated in Mansel Street, at the junction with Christina Street. The business, which sold musical instruments, belonged to the brother of Pete Ham, the frontman and songwriter for Badfinger, the first band signed by The Beatles to their fledgling Apple label.

George Harrison が使っていたギターを 1969年に Pete がもらって、死の直前に Pete から兄の John に渡り、2004年の このオークション に至る。
っていうことなんだけど、それはこの時点で判明というか公表されたことで、以前から Badfinger を追っていた(解散後も Badfinger関連のインタビューや記事を探して読んでいた)者の感覚としては 「あれ? ギター発見されたんだ (または、売られてなかったんだ)」だと思う。  Joey がいつの発言だったか忘れたけど 「あのギターは、Pete の遺族がガレージセールで処分してしまったので、もう誰に買われたのかもわからないし、その後の行方もたどれない」みたいなこと言ってたから。

George が Pete に譲ったというのも、例えれば、アップル高校ロックバンド部出身の先輩 George が、Iveys の甲子園出場を祝って、後輩部員のPete個人にではなく、バンド自体にギターを贈呈したんだと僕自身は勝手に想像している。 これ使ってレコーディングがんばってね って。 バンドのギタリストが Pete と Tom で、Tom はすぐにベースに転向だから、結果的には Pete に譲った形にはなっているけど。

[Narrator]  By now, Badfinger should have been very comfortably off, but the money was not coming through to the band. 
 
[John Ham]  He was changing for the gig and had on what I thought was a pair of... I don't know, comic shoes - the soles were coming away, like the old vaudeville comedians or something like that.  And I said, "Oh, part of the act, do you do a comedy number?" He said, "No, those are my stage shoes." I said, "Well, you can't wear those on stage, you're the local idle coming back." He said, "They're the only ones I've got." 
 
 #money 
 
[Narrator]  Badfinger's eccentric manager, Bill Collins, had encouraged the band to put their finances in the hands of an American businessman named Stan Polley. 
 
 #money 
 
[Nicky Bell]  When the started to get successful, Bill kind of got out of his depth. He did things that he thought were right for the band, but...they weren't. 
 
 #money 
 
[Bill Collins]  I believe that Polley meant well, although he was a very astute businessman, you know, he knows all the tricks, and he told us, he said, "I know all the tricks, but if you play ball, I'll play ball, and we'll all get along fine, and we'll all finish up millionaires." 
 
 #money 
 
[Bob]  He was the archetypal manager with a big cigar and, you know, "I'm going to take you guys to the stars," all that sort of business, and it seemed OK at first. 
 
 #money 
 
[Narrator]  Polley's first move was to get Badfinger away from Apple Records and signed up to a new deal he'd negotiated with Warner Brothers. He dazzled Bill and the band with talk of huge cash advances and said that, for tax reasons, the money should be paid into a series of different bank accounts which he himself would control. 
 
 #money 
 
[Bob]  He said, "Well put it all in a pot, and by the time we've reached the end of the album deals, you know, you'll all be very rich people. But in the meantime, we'll just be on a basic salary, I'm afraid."  And of course, not knowing any better and wanting to think the best of people, the band went along with it, you know. 
 
[Bill Collins]  All around New York in a big limo, and he said, "And it's no good you reading this contract." It was three inches thick. But he said, "Basically, you've got to understand..." And he talked and talked and talked and drummed into my mind that we had 3 million deal to make six albums in three years and, uh... 
 
[interviewer]  This was all in the back of a limousine in New York City? 
 
[Bill Collins]  Yeah, riding around in the dark.

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.

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.

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... 
 
new_Bob BBC
Even after this terrible event, Polley was still trying to make money on it somehow, you know.

Stan Polley said, "I know all the tricks, but if you play ball, I'll play ball, and we'll all get along fine, and we'll all finish up millionaires."

I said, "Look, I don't mind, I'm smiling." And Pete said, "Your mouth's smiling, but your eyes are sad."

Many times Tommy said, "I want to be there where he is."

You have to be hard to be in the music business and Pete was not like that at all.

I said, "Oh, part of the act, do you do a comedy number?" Pete said, "No, those are my stage shoes. They're the only ones I've got." 
 
new_Deke Leonard BBC
It is a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, I think. 
 
new_Matovina BBC
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.
