VIGIL 2009 Fundraiser organized by the Blind Melon Forum

Auto Date Thursday, July 16th, 2009

To those of you that don’t know, Nel Hoon spends a lot of money on the vigil every year, trying to make it as comfortable and enjoyable for us as possible. Last year we thought if we all came together and donated a little bit, we could make the vigil cost free for Nel and we did. Let’s try to do that again this year by contributing to the Vigil fund!

Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon

“About five years ago someone from California sent me about 20 CDs with Blind Melon music. I had not listened to any of those until recently. When I ran across this CD I felt that I had found a treasure to be shared with all the people who love Shannon. After thinking about it for days, I have concluded that Shannon would have wanted me to give this as a Christmas present to you and you and you and you and you … so Merry Christmas!”
Nel Hoon (posted as a bulletin on myspace)

The CD entitled ‘from Shannon to You and You and You and You’ was recorded at Kingways Studios in 1994 and features 8 songs. You can download the whole album here (lossless .flac format).
