I promised to post this picture of Mel months ago, but have had prolems with my computer – but here it is finally.

I work for the newspaper which carried the story about the two American writers doing the book about Trapeze.

I have been a friend of Mel and the band for over 30 years and Mel told me about these guys giving him the Les Paul in lieu of payment for the information about the band. Thats how it got into the paper.

I spoke to Mel earlier today and he's fine. He is working on getting some strength back into the arm so that he can start to play in earnest again.

He's seemed pleased to know that there are people out there who care about him.

For the record, he assures me that he and Sykes were sober when the accident happened. Just messing about!

I saw him play with the 'claw' on many occasions and thought that it did nothing to impare his playing.

I hope you all can open the attachment – I'm sure you'll let me know!

Regards, Hackney
