Vince Melouney
Few musicians can claim to have been a founder member of not one but two of Australia's most influential bands. Queensland-based guitarist Vince Melouney can, however. Vince was the fifth member of The Bee Gees, and an original member of the band that shot the late Billy Thorpe to enduring fame, The Aztecs. With other performance credits including the New Seekers and John Paul Young, Vince is clearly an Aussie pop powerhouse - and he's set to demonstrate his considerable musical powers on Friday and Saturday, February 22 and 23, when he takes to the stage at Vertigo in The Reef Hotel Casino.
Vince will deliver two great shows, studded with the music he helped to make famous along with a selection of well-chosen covers. As a bonus, he will also perform a very special show for the Casino's Mornings In The Arena series on Friday, February 22.
Vince was born in Sydney in 1945, and grew up hugely influenced by the music of the Beat revolution coming out from England. His first band, formed in 1963, was an instrumental surf-sound ensemble called the Vibratones.
...
Like many young Aussies, Vince had itchy feet and in 1967 left the Sydney music scene to try his luck in London. There he fell in with some fellow ex-pats - brothers Barry, Robyn and Maurice Gibb. Vince was invited to join the Bee Gees, and played on the band's first four monumentally influential albums. Remember the guitar sound in 'New York Mining Disaster 1941'? That was Vince. And that lovely guitar melody line in 'I Started A Joke'? Yep. Vince.
Always restless, Vince Melouney went on to further Aussie musical triumphs - as musical director for the New Seekers in the Seventies, or instance, and as part of John Paul Young's band in the Eighties. In 1999 he reunited with the Brothers Gibb for the huge One Night Only concert held in Sydney, and in 2002 Mr Thorpe tapped him on the shoulder for what turned out to be the Aztecs' last ever tour.
One way or another Vince Melouney has been woven tightly into the fabric of Australian rock and pop music for half a century. His shows at the Reef Hotel Casino promise to be amazing journeys into our nation's music history by one of its very architects. For music fans, these are events definitely not to be missed!
Vince Melouney performs at The Reef Hotel Casino in Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February from 8pm. Vince will also be a special guest at Mornings in the Arena on Friday 22nd February from 11am. *** These are free shows in Vertigo.

How My Dream Came True
www.brothersgibb.org, 1 Jan 1999 [cached]
A story of a Bee Gees fan visiting Australia to see how Vince and Colin are doing these days.
...
Vince was a guitarist of The Bee Gees in the early days when the group first became popular in Europe after their arriving back from Australia.
...
Vince Melouney egina: 'It was August 2003 when I once again had the need to call Vince Melouney specially because it was his birthday on August 18th.!
...
Vince hoped that would indeed be possible and wanted to meet with me in Cairns. So the first travel destination for me was known now.
...
I bombed Vince then with all kinds of SMS messages and phone calls in January and February because I in any case wanted to meet him as well, poor guy!!. I felt sorry for him and somehow I felt a little upset too of all this pushing and asking but to complete my travel plans I needed to know places an dates. Now I had to make my final booking and decided to go to Cairns for 14 days, to Byron Bay for 5 days and next to that I wanted to visit Sydney for another 3 days. I wouldn't travel with a group but on my own and although I had the help of my travel agency, planning all this was very exciting. I then mentioned Vince and Joanne my travel plans and just hoped all would go well.
...
It was Vince telling me he was on his way but would be there a bit later at the Beach Hotel in Byron Bay. I was there much too early with some small presents, photos to sign and with my camera. Finally Vince arrived and I recognized him at once.
...
It was already lunch time but I hadn't noticed before with all this talking with Vince. Lisa and Vince took me with them to his car, a huge white Jaguar, a car which suited him perfectly. He opened the car door and there was a huge pick nick basket made by Lisa for our lunch and I was very surprised! We took plaids and cool boxes and find us a nice place on the beach. I couldn't believe to sit there having a pick nick with Vince on the beach. We had fish and salad and several kinds of bread. Regina and Colin I took lots of photos and enjoyed my eating fish with Vince on the beach. Vince told me he was traveling along the Gold Coast at the moment and was planning to visit Germany next year. I told him to keep him updated about the (Bee Gees) fan clubs and to inform the clubs about him, which I did right after coming home again. This way I hope it will be easier for him to get in touch with the clubs while coming over to for instance Germany. After the pick nick we went back to the car to take some more photos etc. walked a bit through Byron Bay and then said goodbye. I then walked back to the hotel. I'd had a great time!! I immediately phoned Joanne to tell her I had a great time meeting Vince and Lisa.
...
From there I phoned Joanne and Vince for the last time to say goodbye before I'd to leave for Germany again.

Vince Melouney We've earlier published some reports about Vince Melouney (Bee Gees' guitarist in the early years) on GSI, told about his album and performance plans and promised to inform you when Vince is coming to Europe. Well he's very busy planning on coming to both the European main land and the U.K. At this time negotiations have started with a music publisher in Germany. The publisher has started posting a biography and information about Vince Melouney on the Internet which you can find at: www.starclustermusic.de and he is going to sell Vince's CD's in Germany too. There's also of course information about his earlier mentioned album: 'Hear At Last' on the Starcluster website. Hopefully many European fans are going to buy his album this will increase the changes for Vince to do more performances in Europe.

Vince Melouney August 18th. former Bee Gee member Vince had his 60th. birthday. In the early days of The Bee Gees we remember him as the guitarist of the group. He was born in Sydney Australia and joined The Bee Gees when they'd arrived back in Britain.
...
Before his Bee Gees period Vince had already worked in the music business with the Vibratones and Vince & Tony and Billy Thorpe & "The Aztecs".
...
Vince went on producing and composing for Ashton, Gardner & Dyke and later on returned to Australia. Today he's still busy there in show business with some kind of One Man Show he travels through the country. The past years he even met up with the Bee Gees again and stood with them on stage in Australia during a guest appearance. This Summer he'd planned to visit Europe but as far as we know now this has been postponed until next year. During a phone call at his birthday he mentioned being busy with his new album and having his own website. It even seems that in Sydney he's busy working again with Colin and he's planning to release a CD with Bee Gees songs. When we have more details we'll surely mention it on GSI.
Vince's website you can find at: http://vincemelouney.com Vince: I hope that you enjoy the website and will contact me with any comments or thoughts. I would particularly love to hear from old friends and acquaintances.
Regards, Vince Melouney
