Big Bertha was shaped in 1969 by Dave Ball (guitar), Dennis Ball (bass) and Cozy Powell (b. Colin Flooks, 29 Dec 1947, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, Britain, d. 5 Apr 1998, Bristol, Britain; drums), three ex-members from the Ace Kefford Stand. Pete French (vocals) and Pete Ball (keyboards) finished the initial line-up. In 1969 the music group made an individual for Atlantic Information. However the a-side, ‘The Globe’s An Apple’, was a fresh documenting, its instrumental coupling, ‘Gravy Booby Jamm’, once was issued to be with the Ace Kefford Stand. An additional single, ‘Munich Town’, was just issued in European countries, where Big Bertha frequently toured. In 1970 Powell still left to become listed on Jeff Beck, while French chosen Atomic Rooster. These were changed, respectively, by Macintosh Poole and Dave McTavish. Big Bertha split in 1971. Dave Ball joined up with Procol Harum until 1972, before getting reunited with sibling Dennis and previous colleague Powell in Bedlam.
