Last layer of the new Abandon Jalopy

Auto Date Saturday, March 19th, 2011

Brad Smith is currently working on his new Abandon Jalopy album called ‘Death & Joy’. He had Rogers Stevens to play guitar on a song named “Summer don’t leave”, Lenny Castro to play the drums and also Chris Shinn to do some backing vocals, “It sounds killer, makes me mad that he sings that well… he just killed it” said Brad talking about Shinn.
A very special guest will also be part of the album: Nico Blue Hoon (Shannon Hoon’s daugther). “Nico sang on ‘Love has a way’ for my Abandon Jalopy record… she sounded great!!” Brad wrote on his facebook page.

Blind Melon and Travis Warren part ways

Auto Date Friday, November 7th, 2008

Blind Melon declared they can no longer work with Travis Warren. Many reasons can explained this, the band has an explanation, Travis has his.
There are probably a lot of things that we ignore behind this and no need to say it’s a tough moment for the guys so we’d better support everyone involded.

Chris Shinn who formed Unified Theory with Brad Smith and Chris Torn is replacing Travis for the upcoming US tour starting on Monday in Allentown, PA.
Blind Melon will start looking for someone to work with after the tour.

Let’s wish Blind Melon and Travis Warren nothing but the best !
