Blind Melon and Chris Farley

March 9th, 2010 by Vincent

On January 8, 1994 Jason Patric hosted Saturday Night Live along with musical guest Blind Melon. Chris Farley was dressed up in a bee costume as Jason Patric introduced the band.

This “partnership” on SNL was not the band’s and Shannon Hoon’s only encounter with Mr. Farley. Chris Farley went to see the band performing live a few weeks later at the Roseland Ballroom in New York and also in August at the Woodstock festival.
