Whitesnake star dying with cancer
World-famous Whitesnake guitarist Mel Galley is seriously ill with cancer, the 59-year-old Staffordshire musician has revealed today.

The rock legend from Cannock has broken the devastating news to friends that he only has a short time to live after recently being diagnosed with the disease. It comes just a month before the star was due to take to the stage again with a new band after years away from the spotlight. Mel said:
Better drowned than duffers if not duffers wont drown

That's a shame. I remember the Trapeze reunion years ago - just checked, 1991, yikes.
