Pete Ham's Birthday

Four days ago I was remembering Pete Ham on the anniversary of Pete Ham. Today is his birthday, just four days after he took his own life. The business side of the music industry failed Pete Ham and his band, Badfinger. The story is tragic and is a cautionary tale even in today's music business landscape.

Is there anything we can do to protect the artistry of music?

Happy Birthday, Pete.
Wish you were here.
