Trapeze

Wolverhampton, England hard rock outfit Trapeze formed in 1968, teaming lead vocalist John Jones and guitarist/keyboardist Terry Rowley (both ex-members of the Montanas, famed for the hit "You've Got to Be Loved") with singer/guitarist Mel Galley, bassist Glenn Hughes, and drummer Dave Holland. Signing to the Moody Blues' Threshold Records imprint, Trapeze issued its self-titled debut album in 1970; Jones and Rowley returned to the Montanas soon after, and in 1970 the remaining trio resurfaced with Medusa. The group toured extensively both at home and abroad, and although their fusion of rock and funk was cited as a prime influence on bands like ZZ Top, their commercial success was minimal. In the wake of the third Trapeze album, 1972's You Are the Music...We're Just the Band, Hughes replaced Roger Glover in Deep Purple. Guitarist Rob Kendrick and bassist Pete Wright signed on for Trapeze's 1974 effort Hot Wire, followed a year later by a self-titled LP; in 1976, the core trio of Galley, Hughes, and Holland reunited, although no new recordings were forthcoming. Hughes again exited prior to 1978's Hold On, which featured Wright in addition to new guitarist Pete Goalby; Trapeze then disbanded, with Galley joining Whitesnake, while Holland tenured with Judas Priest. Galley, Hughes, and Holland re-formed once more in 1991, with a May 1992 London gig yielding the Welcome to the Real World live album. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

This was the first concert I got to go to.... Still in my memory as one of the best concerts I attended.. Plus loved their music until Glen Hughes left - I thought he was the good voice
The warm up band in Houston at that time was also good but I had never heard of them - The Marshal Tucker Band.... that was my intro into southern country/rock

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible friday by the love of Ur life. Tomorrow will be the best day of Ur life. However if u don't post this comment on at least 3 songs u will die in 2 days. Now you've start reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works.

One of the better bands I got to see live in the 70's. Trapeze was one of those bands that seperated the kids who were into music from those with only had a passing interest. I think what prevented them from becoming more popular was their wide range of styles within each record. You could go from funky to dark within one side of an album. I feel lucky to have seen them.

Heavy funk rock at its best. First heard of these guys at Cal Jam '74 when the bassist moved over to Deep Purple

Truly one of the great funk rock bands that made an impact. Its to bad that they did'nt get the recogition they deserved. I'm glad i was apart of the era. Oh yeah!

I never saw them in concert, but Black Cloud was one of my favorite songs when I was a sophmore in high school, I love that song, I am from Odessa too bad I missed that concert

Trapeze was the first concert I ever attended (Ector County Coliseum, Odessa, TX). Even got to meet Holland and Galley at an album store before the show. Great show, loved Medusa and You Are The Music and both are still staples in my library. Glenn Hughes is an absolute musical giant...I highly recommend his solo album Soulfully In The City of Angels...som e great Trapeze re-do's and some excellent solo work - all live. Love these guys.

Glenn Hughes has lots of great solo albums, and a couple w Tony Iommi - a real giant of rock over the years. He's also performed on lots of others' albums as a guest.

Not a very good end to Dave holland. What an a**hole!
Trapeze rocked. They are one of my favorite 70's band b/c of the mood they created. Bluesy and dark w/o despair. Have to love medusa and suicide along with the funky "You are the music..."

Glenn Hughes surfaced on a Tony Iommi Black Sabbath album - Seventh Star - with some fantastic vocals, keep an open mind and don't expect typical Sabbath. Don't recall ever seeing Galley in Sabbath.

A rockin' 3 piece band! Glenn Hughes' early stuff.
