Nel Hoon’s feedback about Shannon & Blind Melon book

Auto Date Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Greg Prato the author of “A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon” received a very nice letter from Nel Hoon recently, discussing what she thought of the book. Click here to read the letter.

The future of Blind Melon

Auto Date Monday, November 10th, 2008

Hey there,

We’ve read a bunch of the posts on here and everybody appreciates the support. It has been very helpful to us over the last few days. It means more than you know…..

It’s time for us to move forward now. Any more time spent with anger and insult is wasted time. One of the things that the last two years has taught us all over again is that we love playing music together. The eleven previous years were spent healing and dealing, and we came back with an even stronger bond. Our dream, what this is really all about for us, is to have the chance to make something great. A great album. A great show. As we said before, we will endure just about anything for that.

So we’re going to try to press forward immediately, and we want to find a singer to go with us. In our minds, Travis set the bar pretty high. And Shannon?….well that goes without saying. We’re looking for somebody from outer space that has their feet on the ground. We’re looking for somebody who has a voice that inspires new songs and sheds new light on our old songs. We’re not looking for clones, drones, jokers, clowns, or drama queens. If you are interested or know somebody else who is, send an mp3 or video/audio link to We’ll check it out and get back to you if we think you might be a good fit for the band.
Thank ya!

US tour cancelled

Auto Date Saturday, November 8th, 2008

Hey Melonheads,

We’ve made an effort to prepare for the tour with Chris Shinn, but there is not enough time. We are canceling the tour outright and will now start to shovel our way out of this enormous mess. Chris made a super effort to try to get ready for the tour, but it’s just too much to ask of him to get up to speed on all these songs in 2 days. It is not fair of us to keep promoters hanging on while we cancel the tour show by show, and it is certainly not fair to ya’ll to drag this out. We are not cool with doing something unless we know it is going to be up to snuff, and it is just doubtful that we would be there by Monday. We will have more news about what our plans are concerning the future this week, as well as information on how those of you who purchased tickets can be refunded. We’re sorry for the confusion, the bad vibes, the drama and the letdowns. We understand the disappointment and anger that you feel towards us. We are angry and disappointed too. We aim to make it up to you soon…..

Blind Melon (11/08/2008)

Blind Melon and Travis Warren part ways

Auto Date Friday, November 7th, 2008

Blind Melon declared they can no longer work with Travis Warren. Many reasons can explained this, the band has an explanation, Travis has his.
There are probably a lot of things that we ignore behind this and no need to say it’s a tough moment for the guys so we’d better support everyone involded.

Chris Shinn who formed Unified Theory with Brad Smith and Chris Torn is replacing Travis for the upcoming US tour starting on Monday in Allentown, PA.
Blind Melon will start looking for someone to work with after the tour.

Let’s wish Blind Melon and Travis Warren nothing but the best !
