Blind Melon book

Auto Date Monday, June 30th, 2008

Chris Thorn, Rogers Stevens, Greg Prato and Brad Smith

“… 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)…”
~ Greg Prato (29th June 2008)

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