Pals in harmony as Mel slips away

  • Tributes flowed in today to Cannock guitarist Mel Galley, of Whitesnake and Trapeze, who has died of cancer aged 60.…mel-slips-away/

  • Modest rocker Mel Galley remembered

    It took me a while to discover the real Mel Galley, writes John Ogden.…ley-remembered/

  • Quote

    When Glenn quit, Mel not only kept Trapeze together, recruiting Pete Wright on bass and Rob Elcock on guitar

    I think that should be Rob Kendrick.

  • I always flash on that picture of John Ogden playing congas with Trapeze...I think it was on the Robert Ellis who better to write a few words about Mel?

    Succinct and to the point....a bit like Mel himself!

    But the greatest thing for me is that Mel learned just how many people loved his music and remembered Trapeze; given his modest manner, he must have been VERY flattered!

    I am so happy that Mel got his props and got to play that last show....And he took the raw deal that fate dealt him and made the very best of the situation.

    Let us celebrate the life of Mel Galley.
