Icon49 Official Trapeze Myspace page

After the successful start to Mel Galley's myspace page - I thought a Trapeze page would be a good idea

David agreed and we contacted Glenn and Mel respectively.

It's actually been online since December 17th but only now is it getting close to being how i want it. Still things to do and tweaks here and there needed but i wanted to let you all know to coincide with the news about Mel being on this months chat

www.myspace.com/trapezeonline

This page is fully backed by both Glenn and Mel, and David has been kind enough to let me use some of his gallery pics.

Mel's son has promised to dig out some rare photos and Glenn is going to see if he can find some stuff too.

Inma, Achim, Pete and Chris have already found it along with 70 others. 700 plays from 400 views so most people are playing two tracks

I'll keep you all posted on any updates etc.

So check out www.myspace.com/trapezeonline

Frank, sadly no, its not a Trapeze show.

If you clicked on the show it gives full details and tells you its a GH solo show.

I have altered it now so that you see that on the front profile.

Glenn's solo show dates will appear on it as and when they are confirmed.

Paul,
The Trapeze site is fantastic - what a great job you've all done to put this together!

Looks like you won't have to beat Mel Galley with a stick for too much longer,
to convince him how much his music has "touched our life."

And now every cardboard box, and nook and crannie of the Galley residence
will be searched: FOR STUFF FOR THE SITE!

HOORAY!

Grace

Icon27 An early Christmas present!

I took a look at the new site and am psyched....here's hoping that Mel and Wolfy don't have to butt heads with the buttheads at My Space over copyright issues. Sounds like the inmates are running the asylum at times!

Great new pics too....glad that all the missing pieces and stories will get filled in! It is a story that has gone untold for too long!

Actually - Medusa is the only album that seems to be blocked.

i'll just have to add live versions of those songs.

The page has just been updated:

the latest additions to Glenn's tourdates added.

New UNSEEN BEFORE COLOUR pics from the Dallas show with Montrose, The Eagles and The Stones added. Obviously GH wasnt in the band then but here is a pic of Glenn from 1994 at a signing in San Antonio that has also been added.

i am hopeful of some more unseen material coming soon too.

Anyone know the best way to get 35mm slides digitised?

Some scanners come with a holder that holds slides and 35mm negatives. Maybe you can get one for yours. Not sure if the scanner has to be a certain model that recognizes media like that. Mine does and came with the attachment that I'm talking about. I've scanned some of my old 35mm negatives and slides.

I'm sure you can find a shop somewhere that can do it. If not, and you trust the mail, I'll do it

I changed all four songs were changed this afternoon. Put on 4 that havent been up before.

Two storming songs from Way Back to The Bone - Medusa and You Are The Music - Even now, despite knowing so much about them and listening to their stuff so much, i am amazed at the power these 3 produced.

And the other 2 - Black Cloud and Feelin so Much Better aint bad either!

Updated the text to say Glenn's touring in support of FUNK - not M4TD!

Rotated all 4 songs a couple of days ago.

check out the 3 piece doing a thumping live version of Way Back To The Bone that hasn't been on the page before.

I wish I could join you for the Trapeze gig Paul. There will be some major changes over here, possibly as soon as this Friday which could include a cross-country move back to sunny Florida
Once I am resettled there the Trans-Atlantic possibilities will return
