Remembering Blind Melon’s Shannon Hoon On The Anniversary Of His Passing

first_imgWe all know the story; a young and promising rock and roll star taken from the world in the prime of his life. That’s what happened to Blind Melon’s lead singer, Shannon Hoon, who passed away on October 21st, 1995 – exactly 21 years ago today.Hoon and his band Blind Melon had taken the world by storm, capturing a certain rock and roll whimsy with an elevated sense of maturity. The band was incredibly popular during the first half of the 1990’s, powered by their mega-hit “No Rain” and supported by countless great songs. Things were only looking up for Blind Melon in the mid-90’s, as the band had just spent time in New Orleans recording their sophomore album Soup.That is, however, until Shannon Hoon tragically overdosed at just 28 years old. The success of Blind Melon led many of the band members to drug and alcohol abuse problems, and stints in rehabilitation were unsuccessful. His untimely death sent shockwaves through the world, depressing avid fans and harshly reminding others about the pitfalls of the rock and roll lifestyle.Shannon Hoon will always be remembered for his one-of-a-kind vocal approach and beautiful songs. Though he passed away so many years ago, Hoon will never be forgotten. In honor of his life, please enjoy this full performance captured just one month before the end, in September of 1995.RIP Shannon.last_img read more
