Hundreds of mourners celebrated the life of the musician Greg Ham yesterday at a private funeral service at Fitzroy Town Hall. Ham was an integral part of the Melbourne music scene for more than 30 years, and among yesterday's 300-odd mourners were Jane Clifton, Red Symons, Men at Work bassist John Rees, Billy Miller and Wilbur Wilde, who performed at the service as part of a saxophone quartet. The death of the former Men at Work flautist and saxophonist Ham, 58, whose body was found at his Carlton home last month, was described as ''a loss to the world''.
