Icon34 Someday they will name a Les Paul after me...

Gibson's Custom Shop has made a John Sykes model of the Les Paul, a replica of his 1978 Black Beauty right down to the mirrored pickguard and the wear marks on the body and neck. There is also a Mick Jones Les Paul, a replica of his 1968 Black Beauty which looks a lot like Mel's guitar. I don't know what year Mel's Les Paul is but it appears to be the same vintage as Mick's guitar.

I think the Les Paul was one of John's first guitars and he has used it on just about every recording he has done.

If wishes were horses...

I go into the city fairly often...get off the subway in midtown and can't resist going up to 48th Streert to walk along "Music Store Row"....Sam Ash, Rudy's Guitars and the world renowned Manny's....I love to window shop there....the guitar has always had an appeal to me as a work of art and there has been some stunning craftmanship on display there.

Some guys are crazy about muscle cars and motorcycles.....I get knocked out by guitars!

but the original electrics on it were from the 1950s.

Mel also changed the black dials on it to the gold ones you see in the pics on Myspace.

just added a new blog with a final message written by Mel just a few days before he passed away.

Mel asked me to continue both his and the Trapeze page and it will be an honour to do so.

Paul, I have said it before, but I will take every opportunity to remind you that I think you are a very cool and standup guy to keep these sites up and working with great music, not to mention as cool as they are for historic purposes.

You really did (and continue to do) Mel a great service, and an even greater one for us, as well. Thanks, brother Wolf

Gee, Paul......It's hard to believe that it's already been
a year since you e-mailed that photograph to me.

As Frank said, tell the people over there ~ that we remember.

Take care

I emailed Wolfy last night saying it has been a year already since we were at Mel's birthday party last year.

Mel, you are truly missed.

Put on the CD " Hold On " and played along to the title track with the bass guitar. Took Wolfys' advice and cranked it. Could feel it!... For Mel.

Icon34 Hey...where do you put the quarters?

I was at work last night and spent some time over at You Tube; along with the videos they have a lot of songs you can listen to..so I cranked a little Trapeze last night over the headphones. I don' have any Trapeze on CD here with me so it was a treat...."Loser" , "Keepin' Time", "Hold On", ....

I was thinking about what Glenn had said in his Tweets about taking a walk in the woods...I do believe that Mel wasn't far away as Glenn walked along the same trails.....

We miss you Mel!

I listen to Mel's music all the time.
I will raise a glass in his memory today.
Just heard Sabbath's "In Memory" from 7th Star.
Glenn was just so amazing on that track
That always makes me think of Mel now.
Mel will always be one of my faves
Have a great week everyone

I remember Mel today, and every day, since his picture is directly over my desk and everytime I pick up the guitar I think about him.
Rock and roll gentleman. Influence to so many.
Cranking it up right now.

Just changed all the songs on Mel's page as the current ones had been playing since Christmas week.

4 cracking Trapeze songs now available for your listening pleasure.

I have also decided to put Dat's It on as a 5th (bonus) track and keep it there for a long time.

The Trapeze page should hopefully get changed this weekend too.

the videos on Mels page have had a bit of an update. there were a few with broken links as they were removed for copyright reasons - but i found all the Whitesnake ones posted by different people instead! I have also added Mistreated from Donington Park 1983 as it wasnt on the page before.

Also, someone has posted on youtube - and they are now on Mels page - three videos of MGM at the Reading Festival in 1987. all shot from Bernie Marsdens side of the stage so Mel is in the distance, but worth watching all the same.

today - July 1st - marks the first anniversary of Mel's death.

a new blog featuring a poem Mel wrote in January 2008, not long after his diagnosis, has been posted.

songs on Mel's and Trapeze page also changed - please drop by, listen to them all and be reminded of what an immense talent he was.

thanks

As Myspace only seems to work when it feels like it I've not updated on here much although both Mel's and the Trapeze page have both had stuff going on - all of Glenn's solo and BCC dates are on Trapeze's page for example.

The Events section on Myspace is a pile of crap and it seems to be pure luck as to if the Invites bit works but i have sent out invites to all of the BCC and GH tour dates to anyone within 100miles on several occasions since they were announced - including today!

Anyway, thought i would let you know you should visit Mel's page to hear 4 instrumental versions of tracks from Slide It In. They have been on separately before at various times but not all together at the same time. All feature Mel, Cozy Powell, Jon Lord, Micky Moody and Colin Hodgkinson
