A GROUP of musicians from the world of blues and dance music have come together to record a charity single as a tribute to their friend Nick Bell, a gifted blues guitarist/singer and ’70s tour manager for Badfinger and Deep Purple. 

Nick, whose life was cut short in March this year at the age of 65 after a brave battle against pancreatic cancer, had spent many years based in Southend, Essex, before retiring to his home village of Jordans, buckinghamshire.

His best friend Richard Cornish, a keyboard player for ‘90s dance band Taste Xperience, decided to release a song he recorded with Nick in 2013 as a tribute to his friend and a way of raising money and awareness for two cancer charities.

Both charities are close to Richard’s heart as his wife Rachael is currently fighting a rare cancer – and it was Nick who introduced the couple.

Musicians from Nick’s Southend-based band The Reeceders were keen to get involved too, as was Taste Xperience producer Russell Lee. Other friends have also generously given their time helping with the artwork, CD design and promotion of this incredible, magical fundraising scheme to make sure all money raised by the sales of the CD go straight to the two worthy causes.

Richard said: “The single is a ‘thank you’ to the hospice who cared so well for Nick and his family in his last few weeks of his life. I also wanted to raise awareness about my wife Rachael’s rare bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), which affects around 1,000 people a year in the UK. 
“The song Foolish Though It Seems is about Rachael and was written shortly before we got married in May 2013. It was through our friendship with Nick that we met in 2011. It was a match made in heaven, a second chance at happiness neither had ever dreamed would be possible. 
“For our story to have begun under the godfather-like eyes of Nick, it seemed only fitting that the song chosen to commemorate him was one we had recorded together in our studio all those years ago.”

[Narrator]  The cash advances from Warner Bros had disappeared. So too had Badfinger's American manager, Stan Polley. Loyal and trusting to the end, Pete refused to believe Polley was ripping them off.  Then Warner Bros sued the band for the return of their money and Badfinger were effectively shut down by their own record company. 
 
[Bob speaking in 1987]  I remember myself, Tommy and Pete going to the management companies in London saying, "Look, we're in this terrible situation and we'd really just like to continue our career, we just want to play." And the companies were sort of saying, "Well, who are you with?" And we'd mention the set-up and they'd, "Well, when you get out of that, come and see us."  We could have written all that off if we could have just carried on and started again, do you know what I mean? But it was difficult to start again. 
 
 #hey, mr manager 
 
[Nicky Bell]  Pete felt like he was a big brother. When life got in the way and things happened with Pete and he took a step back and looked at where his life was going, he thought, "I'm letting everybody down." 
 
[Bob]  He'd have a smile on his face but put cigarette...stubs out on his hand. It was like self-harm. Yeah, I mean, this shows the extent to which he was burning up inside, really. I mean, he felt awful, obviously.  And he played me some tapes...of new stuff. One song really kind of stuck with me, it was a song called Ringside. 
 
 #ringside 
 
[Bob]  If you listen to that lyric, it's such a sad thing because he's likening his situation to, yeah, gather round at the ringside and watch me going down. 
 
 #ringside 
 
[Bob]  Pete had been making these calls to try and ascertain what was happening at the American end, could never get through to Polley, but in the end, one guy worked there, Stan Poses, who had a bit more of an empathy with us.  He spoke to Pete and, unfortunately, he revealed that... He basically said outright that yeah, Stan Polley isn't very wholesome, he's not a good person, he is ripping you off. He said all the things that Pete didn't want to hear, really.

 #apple of my eye 

[Nicky Bell]  Pete was a very loyal guy and didn't want to split away from Apple. You know, that was like leaving part of the family again. And I think that was a terrible strain on Pete. 
 
[Dan Matovina]  Pete was so grateful for the opportunity they gave him and his band and he wrote a song called Apple Of My Eye. How many artists write a song about their record label? Usually when they're about leave, they're angry, but that was Pete Ham. 
 
 #apple of my eye 

[Narrator]  There were changes too in Pete's personal life. After his relationship with Beverly ended, he had several girlfriends. He was a man who very much needed to be in love. Finally, he got together with Anne, and she soon discovered she was pregnant. 
 
[Bob]  This was heaven for Pete, you know, family man, and suddenly he was going to have his family and he'd lived for all these years, you know, in essentially a bedsit in Golders Green. I mean, that's what it was, living on very little money, even during all the successes. 
 
 #matted spam 

[Narrator]  Pete set up a home with Anne in Weybridge, Surrey, just a mile down the road from Tommy Evans and his wife Marianne.  
 
 #matted spam 

[Anne Herriot]  He was just a lovely, lovely guy. Beautiful nature, you couldn't have asked for a better partner, he was so kind, loving. He wanted to be left alone to go out and play his music but he was... You have to be hard to be in the music business and Pete was not like that at all. 
 
[Tag Hall]  Pete was very happy, you know, he wanted to do loads of stuff with the house. Everything seemed OK until the cheques stopped coming.
