I came across a couple of pictures I took at the Trapeze gig at the Bristol Granary in 1982. Here they are.
Mel at the Bristol Granary 1982
I am guessing this was from one of Trapeze's last shows...it wouldn't be long before DC came-a-calling and it was off to a reconstituted Whitesnake. I wonder who else was in the band at the time.
I think the 'drummer' in the background is Steve Bray (...but I could be WRONG).......
Definitely Steve Bray on drums in the picture.
I think Mervyn Spence played that night. It certainly wasn't Pete Goalby.
I thought Tom Galley stated that Spence had never been a member of Trapeze?...
Here are the complete list of dates that Trapeze played at the Granary Club.

Info is from a book by Al Read who was the entertainment manager for the club from 1968-1982 until he left to work for the BBC.
Also along side of the 1982 entry was a photo, a different one, taken from the same night as the ones posted above by barrence. Probably one of yours barrence as it is very similar.
