BLIND MELON


Blind Melon is an American rock band that formed in Blind Melon formed in California in 1989, with members from Indiana, Mississippi, and Pennsylvania. In 1995 the band lost their vocalist Shannon Hoon to a drug overdose.
The band reformed with a new lead vocalist, Travis Warren, in 2006, who left the band in 2008.

The band's name is believed to have been derived from 1920s' Blues artist Blind Lemon Jefferson. Another story states that the band took its name from the bassist Brad's father, who teased the band calling them "Blind Melons" which even if this story is the true inspiration, the father almost certainly took the reference from either the early blues artist or the skit in parody of him in Cheech and Chong. The reference to Blind Lemon Jefferson also fits the band's blues-influenced style.

Great band IMO. Caught them with their former vocalist Travis Warren and he was great as well. They had Hoon's daughter Nico come up and sing the song Change which was pretty intense IMO.

One of the most underrated bands in music IMO. It is a shame they lost Hoon. It would have been great to see where he could have taken them.

I like Blind Melon. I have both their self titled album and "Soup", the latter of which I think is better. Two of my favorite songs from "Soup"...

I owned the first Blind Melon c.d. back in my cassette days! I liked it and always thought Shannon Hoon was somehow transported to the future as opposed to being born because he was the ultimate hippy of the 90's!

I've never liked Blind Melon. I've always found them extremely irritating, but I can't pinpoint exactly why.

Love this band more and more I listen to their first two albums.

I always liked them, but forgot about them later on in life, but when I went down south to be with my girlfriend (ex now) she had the album playing in the car on one of our drives I fell in love with em again.

Love the sound of them.
