Auto Date Saturday, April 8th, 2006

People in Indiana have to be aware of that! There is a mini-vigil at the end of this month. This is an unorganized event, some people have planned to get there on 4/20 (thursday) but if you can be there one day and only one day, you have to go on Saturday April, 22. Bring your guitar, your heart, your brain and your body and meet a bunch of cool melonheads.
There are gonna be tears, laughs, fun, camp fires, good music and also a lot of melon love. So join them!
Tricia has made a myspace group for this mini vigil so you can have more details, ask questions…

A message from Rogers Stevens about the ‘Live At The Palace’ album

Auto Date Thursday, April 6th, 2006

Dear friends of the Melon,
We are very disappointed with the new “Live at the Palace” release. I have not seen a hard copy of the disc yet, but I was aware several months ago that the track list was scrambled when they made an aborted attempt to put it on iTunes, but did not know that this was off on the disc as well. We’ve been around the bend with Capitol about this, and they pretty much did what they wanted to anyway. The band does not have a manager now, so we didn’t have anyone to run interferece with the label, and were dealing with it ourselves. We hated the cover, nobody who worked on it was credited, and it was put together without any consideration for our wishes. Last year, we worked closely with Capitol to release the “best of” and “live at the metro” releases, but some new people took over and just didn’t care for our input. If you go to itunes Australia or England, you’ll see the cover that we picked, which fits the theme of the other releases. Brad and Christopher spent a week mixing this thing and got no credit. Lyle Eaves (our live sound engineer) facilitated the recording…and again no credit. We wanted to honor our crew members who stuck with us through some unbelievably difficult touring…again no credit. We stand by the quality of the show and recording, but cannot remain silent about what they did with it. It’s a goddamm shame, too, because Capitol treated us very well to this point. As always, we appreciate your support……

Auto Date Sunday, April 2nd, 2006

Hi guys and gals,
It’s been a busy month in March as we slowly put the pieces together for TWENTY STORIES BELOW - A Tribute to Blind Melon.
We’ve had a few more submissions, and other bands have extended their deadlines till the Mid-End of April, which we are happy to do. We’d love to hear from everyone who haven’t emailed lately and let us know how your submissions are going, if you haven’t submitted yet!
The website hasn’t had an update in a while, as there hasn’t been news to report, but the pre-order page isn’t far from beginning (this is taking a lot longer than previously thought, and we apologise again for this). We will also have pre-order specials for bands/artists to pre-order bulk to further sell onto fans, families and friends.
That’s all for now!
Look forward to all band updates and extended requests (if needed).
