I just returned home from dinner and received an email from Chip, lamenting today's news.

Words can't convey how shocked and saddened I am to hear of Mel's worsening condition. It's been wonderful to see Mel's pleasure at having reconnected this past year with so many of his fans, and rekindling the fire to perform again. This cruel turn of events has pulled the rug out from under all of us.

Mel, if you're reading this, I hope that all the positive energy your music has given us over the years comes back to you tenfold. I wish you strength and I hope that somehow things will take a turn for the better.

With all the love and cheer I can possibly send, despite the sadness I feel...

Cheers...Todd

Hello everyone, just spoke with Mel and told him of the responses on this site. He wants to thank all of you for your messages of love over the last few days since his illness was diagnosed. He knows he's had a fantastic life and has experienced things people can only dream about and for that he's extremely grateful.

In order to maintain some privacy at this time he would be grateful if you send your letters to my address.

This is absolutely horrible news. But nothing in the future is ever 100% definite. I hope he stays strong.

How many years did he go to a School of Journalisn?

And this is the only wording that he could find for this newspaper headline?



PS.....hackney: I mailed a card to your address today, the 7th.

Grace, John Ogden is one of Mel and Glenn's dearest friends and played percussion on You Are The Music.. as well as dozens of live performances with Trapeze. He wrote the article sure but the headline is added by a sub-editor when making the page up.

However, it could have been more caring, I agree.

Mel saw the article yesterday and when we spoke last night he was very happy with the piece.

Love J

I was so saddened when I first read about Mel's condition, especially knowing how enthusiastic some of you have been about attending his gigs in March! At first I thought I didn't get it right, that I misunderstood, but now.....

Now I can only send my love and blessings to Mel, his family and friends!

OK, hackney.
Thanks for correcting my mistake. I apologize to Mr. Ogden.

It's just that the headline was so...............
It could have easily and accurately used the word "fighting" instead.
That sub-editor needs "a couth lesson," among other things.

Please keep on the look-out for the mail.
And thanks for sharing your "45 year friendship" with us.

This is very somber news.

Just remember that there is a power greater than any doctor or any so called illness.

May God be with you Mel

Jeez, this is terrible news. Mel and I share the same birthday and the same illness (although my battle with cancer ended successfully in 2000). I hope Mel is able to beat this dreadful disease too. My thoughts are with you and your family, Mel.

I think about something.. I hope Glenn will give his new album F.U.N.K to listen to Mel.. Glenn says that this album will be a sort of following to the "you are the music.." album.. I'm sure that Mel will be very happy to listen this...
