Blind Melon in Albuquerque, NM

Auto Date Monday, February 7th, 2011

Blind Melon were playing in Albuquerque, NM last friday. The show was at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the band opened for Candlebox. “Candlebox rocked! I have not seen those guys in years, it was great to catch up with them as people and great to hear them as a band!!” said Brad Smith after the show. Despite the crazy weather and the fact that New Mexico was having a shortage of gas, the show went fine. “It was great to play Blind Melon songs again and see familiar faces!” Brad Smith said.

Ryan Conway of the Blind Melon Forum was there and, once again, is kind enough to share his photos and videos with the melonhead community! Click the picture below to see more or visit Ryan’s website at www.blindmelonarticles.com

George Aldrich - RIP

Auto Date Friday, December 10th, 2010

Post updated on 12/15/2010:

George Aldrich went missing a few hours after the Blind Melon show and has not been heard from for the past week. After the concert, he went to a bar with friends, and after leaving the bar, he boarded the wrong bus (10:15 pm RTFA bus).

His sister posted a message on the Blind Melon Forum facebook page asking anyone who might have seen him to please contact the Aspen Police Department.

Unfortunately, Aspen police confirmed Tuesday that a body found under a bridge this weekend was George. He apparently died from an accidental fall from the Maroon Creek Bridge.

Our prayers and thoughts go to the Aldrich family and friends. May George rest in peace.

Happy birthday Rogers Stevens!

Auto Date Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Today is Rogers Stevens birthday, so have a good day Rogers!

I guess it’s the perfect day to remind you about an amazing audio recording that Ryan Conway has uploaded a few weeks ago on archive.org. This is actually a 2 hours long interview of Rogers Stevens and Christopher Thorn conducted by Steve Rosen of Ultimate Guitar Magazine during the “For My Friends” sessions at Blind Melon studios in North Hollywood, CA. The tape was actually not meant to be broadcasted but was only for Steve Rosen to use the information to write his article.

Christopher Thorn and Rogers Stevens

Thank you so very much to Ryan Conway who purchased the tape and to Matt Theberge for converting the tape to a digital format.

Vigil 2010 fundraiser

Auto Date Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Throughout 2009, the Blind Melon Forum was able to raise $500 to help cover some of Nel Hoon’s costs with the annual vigil in celebration of Shannon’s birthday! Donations came in from all over the world from regular vigil folks as well as people who had never even heard of it before and they came in all amounts (ranging from $5 to $150). How cool is that? Nel was very touched and asked to thank you all for your incredible kindness!

So now it’s time to start thinking about the 2010 vigil that will take place in 4 months. The Blind Melon forum staff has opened up the 2010 fund and is counting on your generosity once again. Every dollar helps!
