Great guitarist! Mel was a founding member of Trapeze, and kept the home fires burning after Glenn Hughes left the band for Deep Purple. Mel later joined Whitesnake, where he played with a couple of Glenn's former Deep Purple band mates. In the mid-80's, Mel played on his brother Tom's Phenomena projects. This was not too long after an accident left Mel barely able to play guitar, after his fretting hand was crushed in what I believe was a skateboarding incident. Aside from a brief reunion of Trapeze in 1992-94, Mel hasn't done much other than those things I've mentioned. I'm not entirely sure, however, so I'll defer to my esteemed colleague, travel buddy and Professor of Trapezology...
