It was morning between 10 and 11AM, early for most rock n rollers. Strolling hallways of the rehearsal studios, and checking to ensure everything was clean and bathrooms had toilet paper, a catchy melody emanating from one of the rooms caught my attention. No lyrics, just the music. I figured the band's singer was sleeping-in or they hadn’t worked out the lyrics yet.
I sat down in the hallway outside their door and listened. No doubt, it was a future hit.
The band was being courted by several major music labels. I was fending phone calls and refusing to confirm or deny the band was rehearsing in the building. Months later, I was attending a show for another band at a club on the Hollywood Strip, and was upstairs in private upstairs area of the club when my employer tapped my shoulder and pointed a TV monitor. Blind Melon’s hit video “No Rain” was airing.
Smiling, life felt good, felt right. I was in the right place at the right time in my life, making a living in a creative environment. By Labor Day 1993, I had lost sight of that fact. Looking back and reflecting is fine, yet moving forward is of equal importance.
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
