Couldn't agree more. The reaction in the Black Country at the time was that Glenn had let us all down by going off to Purple and leaving Mel & Dave in the lurch. There were boycotts of Purple gigs at Wolverhampton Civic at one point, if memory serves...

Hindsight's a great thing, but if Trapeze has stayed together in '73, they might have conquered the world

Just my opinion...
