“… I now have all the signed interview releases for the book, and all the members of the band ok’d the book after reading the manuscript. I’m just waiting for a few more pictures that photographers are going to contribute for the book. I think i’m going to go with a ‘print on demand’ company to put out the book (which means, people can buy it online, and each copy is printed per each person that buys a copy, so there’s no overstock or anything). By doing it that way, I should be able to get the book out much sooner, and will also be able to have much more of a say in how the book turns out. I’m hoping (fingers crossed) to have the book totally done and ready for purchase by the end of the summer. The title of the book is now ‘A devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other: the story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon’ (it’s a phrase that Rogers once said to describe Shannon)…”

tip: The book was originally titled ‘Caramel Cake Covered Christmas’.

blindmelonforum.com hosts a Blind Melon and Blind Melon related radio show every two weeks. The last show was a very special one: 2 Shannon Hoon acoustic songs were played. Those songs were recorded back in 1994 at the Kingsway Studio in New Orleans, the first one is ‘All That I Need’ with different lyrics and Shannon playing harmonica and the second one is totally unknown! Take a deep breath, click here and enjoy both sides of show#10
