Hey all! There's going to be a delay in getting some of Travis's tunes available for you all... But, not to worry. The time WILL come. It's in Travis's, and the bands', best interest to keep things on the down-low for the time being. I'll keep you all updated when I hear more.

No. I don't really know what to make of it. The band just wants him to hold off on sharing some of his older stuff. Once Blind Melon releases their new record, Travis will share his tunes. Basically, if the Melon fans get blasted with a bunch of unreleased music from Travis, the new album may not get as much attention, which makes sense. But, on the flip side, all of the people that oppose Travis being the singer of Blind Melon may change their mind if they hear some of his unreleased stuff. It's a risky situation, really...
So, he decided to take the advice from the band and hold off, for the time being...

I see their point, but i disagree with it. I don't care how much other stuff Travis has out there. As much as i'd like to hear it. There is NO WAY, i'm not going to grab the new melon record, as soon as I can.

That just seems weird to me. Why would they limit him on the stage. Many singers, like many other musicians play from the heart. If a shirt comes off or stays on, it's something that happens in a moment or feeling of a crowd during a show. It would just be odd, if they set "ground rules" for his performance. When he's on stage "doin' his thing", the only thoughts that should be crossing his mind is playing the best show he can. Not trying to follow a certian set of rules. By the way, lots of singers, and musicians alike, remoe their shirts on stage. Trust me, it gets hot up there.

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
