John Paul Jones used a mellotron on several Zeppelin songs, No Quarter and Kashmir, most notably. I read an interested interview with him who knows where anymore.. But he mentioned that he hated using mellotrons live, because they had to get all the songs that used it out of the way early in the show, because of all the heat generated by the lights and whatnot, the tapes inside would stretch, and after long, it wouldn't sound right.
