Pete Ham was in born in Swansea in 1947 where he formed first The Iveys and later Badfinger.
Badfinger will probably be best known for their Hit Singles Come and Get It and No Matter What but it was their project work with The Beatles, George Harrison and Harry Nilson that particularly Pete Ham would also be remembered.
Pete passed away in 1975 and finally his memory has been honoured with this presentation, a tribute concert at Swansea Grand Theatre, A new stone at Morriston Cemetery and a CD.
