Blind Melon: January session

Auto Date Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Hi All,
Tracking is going great…we’re doing 8 new songs that we really like on this session and then another 10-12 next month. We’re planning to do 2 albums in this period before April. We’ll release one and then another a few months later (if all is up to par). Meeting with people etc….filming the whole thing with Danny Clinch for some kind of documentary type thing. All is going well in sunny LA (although it was kinda chilly here last week)…..more news soon

Upcoming book about Blind Melon

Auto Date Monday, January 15th, 2007

Journalist Greg Prato is currently working on a book about the history of Blind Melon. He has already done extensive interviews with all the surviving members as well as those close to the band (members of bands they toured with, producers, friends…).
Greg Prato
has written a few articles about Blind Melon for the Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines and is a friend of the band. The book should be completed sometime in 2007 so stay tuned.

The fans loved it!

Get a taste of the Extra Virgin sound

Auto Date Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Extra Virgin was Rogers Stevens‘ band after Blind Melon officially broke up.
From 1999 to 2002, his collaboration with singer Rene Lopez resulted in many great songs, a studio album entitled ‘12 Stories High’ and many concerts in the New York area mainly. The band split up during the recording session for a 2nd album so many things didn’t come out.
Thanks to Matthew Flood who ran the Extra Virgin website and with kind permission from both Rogers Stevens and Rene Lopez, here are demos, unreleased songs and never seen before pictures from the Extra Virgin days. Click here and enjoy!

Many thanks to Rogers Stevens, Rene Lopez and Matthew Flood

Happy new year 2007 to you!
