Heres the story that Nel told me. I don't know what year it was but it was before their first album came out. Shannon was living in L.A. at the time. It was Christmas time and Nel sent him a Christmas package. She sent him a CD player/ boombox and in the package she included a necklace very much like the one we all know and love. A couple of weeks later Shannon phoned his mom to thank her for the gift. When she asked him if he liked the necklace, he asked "what necklace". She told him that she included a necklace in the package with the CD player. Apparently that necklace was lost in the box of foam peanuts. He didn't realize it was in there and already threw the box away. So Nel soon found a replacement and sent it to him. I'm not sure if she found it at a yard sale or what. But somewhere in a trash dump in L.A., underneath the trash of the rich and famous lay a necklace sent to Shannon from his mother. I love that story!

In 1995 Shannon stated that he and the rest of Blind Melon ate what while all the other bands were out doing drugs, this was when Shannon just got out of rehab for the second time and they were in New Orleans recording Soup!
By the way My name is Cody, for EVERYONE! who doesnt know me, I have been reading the boards for Melon snice about a year ago, never really said anything just like to smile when I read some of the things people have to say about one of the only things I love in my life, (BM) its a place where i can share my insterest and passion for BM with people who have the same! I live in lafayette,IN and u would think living here would mean, HEY LOTS OF BM FAN! HA! most of them are compltley fake! have no clue about BM expect for one of them came from lafayette, it just makes me sick, cause of what BM means to me, and you ask them "Oh You Like BM? Whats You'r Favroit Song" And They'll Repsond 99.9% either "I Dont Know Any Of The Names Or No Rain" Im Glad IM NOT THE ONLY BM FAN! (Thats a true fan that is)

jennywest: It's beento long since anyone has written as beautifully as Shannon. I wish and try to find stars among galaxy's that I could write even kind of like him. It's only been lately since addiction has completely taken over, have I even looked at a pen.

gratefulandmelon: i can't believe it has took me this long to think of coming to this site, it's long over dew, maybe because the thought of shannon not being with us anymore still bugs me, & loosing my best friend a couple days ago made me think of him.

gratefulandmelon: me & shannon used to hang around some of the same people & places when i lived in lafayette all them years ago, so when he got blind melon going i was hooked, but when he left us behind i took it pretty hard & it still bugs me.

emilahp: Hi it has taken me awhile to visit here, I'm a huge fan of the band and Shannon, I was greatly affected by his death, it shook me to my core. I still think of him, the band and the super incredible music. Shannon at Woodstock was such an incredible frontma
