Peter and his  band, which included Mike Gibbins from Badfinger, and Martin Ace from  Man, were one of the bands that played at my first wedding in 1982. Great evening, and I'd more or less forgotten about it!

[Book] Deke Leonard / The Twang Dynasty (2012) : Peter Ham + Mike Gibbins

Deke Leonard / The Twang Dynasty (March 1, 2012)  Look inside 
Deke Leonard - The Twang Dynasty
Iveys と同郷のバンド Man の Deke Leonard (Badfinger のドキュメント番組などにもよく登場しており、Gary Pickford Hopkins and Friends - Why? (1986) にも参加していた) が、交友のあった50人以上のギタリストに関して書いた本。 Pete Ham も登場する。
よくある Pete や Badfinger に関する事実の羅列だけの本とは違って、Pete や Tom や Mike と実際に交わした会話が中心なので、貴重だと思う。そのかわり、チャートの正確な順位とか、時間の流れなどは記憶だけで書いている感じ。 が、そんなことは他の場所でいくらでも検索できるので無問題。 本に収録のものと全く同じなのかわからないけど、Pete の章は以下のサイト で読める。

ピートのエレピ   伝記本Without Youには、「好きなだけ使っていいと言われ、3年後に返した」と書いてある  
タグから聞いた ピートの最後
上の本とは無関係だけど、1973年の Deke Leonard のソロ・アルバム Iceberg で、1曲だけ Mike Gibbins がdrumsで参加しているのがこの曲。
