"2 of 3" Said : The really smart, good looking people in the world knew Badfinger were scary brilliant , but their timing in the world of music couldn't have been worse. It's too bad somebody like George Martin didn't pull Pete Ham aside and somehow get into his head that he could be one of the great songwriters in music.I can't think of another person with that much natural talent, who was so insecure he had no idea.
"Guru" Replied: I wish I was smart and goodlooking! If I only knew that the only thing that seperated me from the Brilliance of Badfinger was a plastic surgeon and tutor away!
I've heard many times that former Rolling Stone , Mick Talor was much the same as Pete Ham in the fact of their importance as extraordinary talent.
I guess even Rockin Rollers get "human" sometimes too!
