Wow! I just found this site, and very happy I did. I saw the date this morning and I started thinking about the old days, which inspired me to start searching the net for anything Blind Melon, related and was truly blown away with what I found. I don't know why I have never done that before. I don't go online too often, plus to be honest, i stopped playing the first two albums (plus nico) shortly after '95, but dont be mistaken, this band has and still does have a profound affect on my soul. I was 15 years old back in '93, when I first heard the band. (Just ripe for pickin'!) I was a jock and was on both the football and basketball teams at my high school. Upon hearing the first record I was forever changed. I grew my hair long, (still have it!) stared playing the drums and started smoking........ (still do!!). I quit the ball teams and changed friends, the classic story of many I know. Blind Melon inspired me creativley and literally eased the pain of those years by creating such astounding music and I am forever grateful to them for that. Blind Melon were and are such an important piece of music history and need to be treated as such. After listening to all these songs again today it just reinforces those beliefs. And it is great to know that they are back and sound fantastic, as usual, even though missing Shannon. Anyway, that's enough out of me. I got some more songs to listen to

That’s exactly how I felt when I found this. The difference is, I did consider myself pretty with-it in internet-land. It just hadn’t occurred to me to search for it. I too was blown-away by the online community that exists and felt dumb for having not found it earlier.
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
