Kinda feels like Shannon and i are still leanin on each other.”

Years before the tune showed up on the Guns N’ Roses 1991 album “Use Your Illusion I,” a little band in Lafayette was playing “Don’t Cry” in their set.
That little band, which was called Styff Kytten, happened to have a young Shannon Hoon as its lead singer.
Mike Kelsey (Styff Kytten guitarist) said he was careful to call the show Project 88 instead of a full-on Styff Kytten reunion. The musicians wanted to respect Hoon’s memory and include other musicians who were rocking stages more than 20 years ago. Kelsey revealed that a portion of Saturday’s show will have the guitarist playing solo, acoustic versions of Blind Melon songs. “It is the best way I know how to celebrate the spirit of Shannon,” he said.
Kelsey and fellow Styff Kitten members drummer Barry Koch and bassist Brian Bundy will reunite for “Project 88,” a semi-Styff Kytten reunion and celebration of the local rock scene circa 1988. The show will be at 9 p.m. Saturday July 3rd at Nick’s Riverside, 402 Brown St., West Lafayette, IN.
