Bio

Vince Melouney was born August 18, 1945 in Sydney, Australia.
Early 1963 Vince Melouney heard all the new music coming over from England. His idea was to form a band influenced by this new sound and at the same time creating something unique in Australia. Vince Melouney and Tony Barber left BILLY THORPE & THE AZTECS in 1965 to form VINCE & TONY'S TWO . At this time Vince also started to work as a session guitarist. Vince Melouney and Tony Barber left BILLY THORPE & THE AZTECS in 1965 to form VINCE & TONY'S TWO . At this time Vince also started to work as a session guitarist. During the summer of 1965 Vince Melouney joined TONY WORSLEY & THE FABULOUS BLUE JAYS , recording one album and touring throughout the country. Early 1966 Vince Melouney formed his group, THE VINCE MELOUNEY SECT . Their first single release was a moderate hit, especially in the Melbourne area, and was followed by a four track maxi single. The final release was a solo single by Vince, produced by Nat Kipner. In October 1966 Vince headed off to London to further his music career. Through the EASY BEATS (who were also in London at the time) Vince heard that the Gibb Brothers were in town and made contact. He was asked to join them and their drummer Colin Petersen in their recording sessions. Once the album "Bee Gees First" had been completed Vince Melouney became the official 5 th member. THE BEE GEES proved with their second album that they really had become a tight unit. The overall sound was much heavier and Vince Melouney's lead guitar was used more prominent on several songs. Vince stayed with THE BEE GEES till the end of 1968 and was part of the worldwide success of the group. After the release of "Idea" Vince Melouney felt that his guitar playing wasn't needed any longer. He wanted to add more rock'n'roll to the music but the brothers wanted to include more ballads. In the end Vince left THE BEE GEES but agreed to play on a few songs for the new album. Vince Melouney started recording a solo album, which was announced in the music press as "Maiden Voyage", however was never completed. Vince took the job, however it did not work out due to musical differences. Vince put together a hard rock supergroup and signed a recording deal with MCA Records. Vince Melouney accepted an invitation from the New Zealand band THE CLEVES for an Australian tour. Thereafter he played the Melbourne Circuit with his band FLITE . Vince briefly joined BARRIE McASKILL'S PEOPLE as a band member before accepting an offer as Musical Director of the NEW SEEKERS for their English tour. After several years of pursuing some of his other passions in life, In 1980 Vince returned to Australia to record and tour with JOHN PAUL YOUNG . Vince got involved in the Film & Advertising Industry in Sydney writing and producing music until he moved to Queensland in 1990. Live performance once again became a major part of his life. Apart from touring with his show throughout the country, Vince has been invited over recent years to perform at important music events, such as : "Covers" Album by Vince Melouney was released in 2004.
