When I was 6 years old, I heard "No Rain" for the first time. I was sitting in the car with my dad on the way home from Cincinnati. He started talking about how he was good friends with Shannon in high school and how he attended the showing when he died. I fell in love with the song right away, and I vaguely remember digging through boxes of CD's in the basement for the self-titled album. Now, over a decade later, I'm proud to call myself an avid Melonhead. I really started getting into all of Blind Melon's work 3 years ago. I've basically memorized every album. I've heard all kinds of crazy stories about high-school Shannon from my dad, which always leave me smiling huge. I went to my first Vigil last year. For the first time in my life, I felt like i belonged somewhere I didn't even know anyone. Playing songs around Shannon's and Tim's graves brought me down to earth like I've never felt before. Definitely plan on going to the Vigil every year as long as it's around. Blind Melon's music is some of the only music I've ever truly connected with. It helped me through an incredibly hard time, and I'll always have that tight emotional connection with it. Can't wait to see them at the Indiana State Fair August 5th ;D RIP Shannon
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
