You all might remember that I posted a picture a while back in the Ultimate Shannon Hoon picture thread that had a picture of Chris Cornell wearing the fork necklace that Shannon had made for him. . .
I was looking through some articles that Leigh has donated towards the articles website, and I found this one from a RIP magazine in January of 1993. It has a band photo, and you can see Brad wearing the fork necklace that Shannon gave to him. . .
So it is easy to see that they are different. I wonder how many fork necklaces Shannon gave away as gifts.
What a creative gift! It would be so cool to have a fork necklace that was made by Shannon. . . #blindmelon_01#
I'm fine. It's just sore if I bump it. I was thinking about going to Big Lots (they sell individual silverware) and trying those out. Oneida definately does not bend easy. I laughed lastnight though when I read the back of the fork. It said "Rogers".

heeeyyy!!!...nice pictures ...who knows how many necklace made shannon!!!...it's awsome...I wonder who start with this...was his mom or was shannon!!... ...I want to see more pictures of brad using his necklace...
...anyone knows what is the material of those necklaces...also they look very dangerous...jeje...very sharp...
Most eating utensils are made of stainless steel (which is a combination of nickel and chrome). Some are also made of sterling silver.. but I don't own any, because I'm too poor. I can imagine that Chris and Brad poked themselves quite a few times while wearing them... but hey, that's the price you pay to wear a shannon hoon fork necklace
keeperofthekeys: Listen, I know i don't be talkin' bout shit, but this is important. Where is this still of Shannon from? http://www.beemelon.com/html/pictures/section/shannon_hoon/detail/pic_046.html I can't move forward until I know! What is this? He looks suave! tell me

everett: My dad told me he saw Blind Melon in like 93' or 94' At the volcano bar In Kitchener, and he was so bombed that he was taking out tables and the bouncer wanted to kick him out, but Shannon said to just leave him and let him enjoy his buzz, what a story!
