The show went well.. Good sound... I guess Travis sounded great.. The recording can't be shared yet, unforunately.
Rogers showed up to play 5 shows:
The Pusher For My Friends Hypnotize Sleepyhouse To Spain I Stay
As for the other shows. I'll be getting those anytime soon. Keep you all posted.
yeah...this is correct information. The show was fun. Travis got up and played a few songs before I went up and it was the first time I had a chance to see him perform in front of an audience...it was eye-opening and awesome because he has no fear of being up there. You get the sense that he owns the stage and everyone else is just borrowing it. Anyway, his vocals were spot on. People in the audience were crying when we played "sleepyhouse", so either it was really good or totally horrible. I didn't have a chance to ask them. Also, the crowd was singing the 'goddamms" on 'the pusher' at top volume.
Apologies for being cagey about sending out a show recording. We really want these songs to be presented in the studio versions before any live stuff gets out there. Once the album is released, we're totally cool with taping and all that stuff.
I've been very busy here in LA with the recordings and music biz stuff, so I haven't had time to get back to my blog. I'm heading back to NYC now for a couple of weeks and will catch up. I'm also going to review the tracks on the Blind Melon tribute record this month. Perhaps I will do so in the voice of Simon Cowell.
On a serious note, I was really sad to hear about Jon Larsons...emailed with him a few times and he seemed like a cool chap....RIP brother....
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
