Guitarist MICHELLE MELDRUM, leader of PHANTOM BLUE,
was rushed to St. JosephÂ’s Hospital in Burbank,
California in critical condition late Wednesday, May
21, 2008. Tests revealed that, due to a cyst on her
brain, oxygen and blood flow had been restricted,
rendering her brain dead.

Meldrum is survived by her parents and her son, Jake.
She began her professional music in the mid-1980s by
forming WARGOD, which was featured on NEW RENAISSANCE
RECORDS compilation albums. Later, she joined the
influential act POST MORTEM, and appeared on the
MISSING LINK album, which was also released on NEW
RENAISSANCE RECORDS.

Michelle Meldrum, however, was best known as the lead
guitarist of PHANTOM BLUE, an all-girl band which
received success in the late 1980s and for her own
band MELDRUM which toured with international acts such
as MOTORHEAD and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.

At the time of her passing, Michelle was working on
third album with GENE HOGLAND, with whom she had
worked since the days of WARGOD.

MICHELLE MELDRUM is featured on the upcoming reissue
of the first two releases of POST MORTEM, which is set
for release on NEW RENAISSANCE RECORDS on July 15,
2008.

That was awful. Poor Michelle and her family. Phantom Blue is one of my favorites female bands, she be surely missed.
