Terrible news. Poor Mel. I heard today and didnt really believe it but it is true sadly.
words cannot express...........
Mel is a true gentleman and its an honour to have him as my friend.
Quite a few of you have my snail-mail address if you want to send a card over for me to pass on. if you dont then PM me.
Brother, i want to send a card to Mel but i don't have your msn or e-mail.
I'm so sad to hear this news. I haven't posted on here for years, I don't know what to write. Mel. You are the music.
You were always friendly when as a teenager I used to follow you around with Whitesnake and MGM. Your guitar playing is unique and from the heart and I just hope you know how much you are loved and idolised by so many.
I have a rare recording somewhere of you playing with Rosie in Cannock in the late 80's. An awesome duet of her track 'Stand by me.. and I will stand by you'.. Well I hope you know we are all standing by you, but if you can't stay around, then say hi to Cozy and dont stop the music.
My prayers go out to Mel and his family. I love his guitar work in Trapeze - those tunes with and without Glenn. Thank you so much for the music. I love the utube videos of Mel playing.
