It's been almost 18 years and still the sting of losing Shannon Hoon is sharp, and one can only shake their head at the tragic loss.
His mom, family and friends have a yearly vigil the week before his birthday, September 22nd. I wanted to go this year, but decided to wait until this winter. I'm way overdue for a solo train trip, so this December I plan on braving the weather and traveling to Indiana to visit his family and see for myself where one of my favorite singers came from. I will be live streaming and filming my entire trip so check back this December to participate and ask questions through our Live Performance page. This does not mean I will be interviewing anyone in the family, my plan is to talk to the normal everyday fan and talk about what Blind Melon means to them.

Jack Endino with Endino's Earthworm at Hempfest 2013
Seattle has been fortunate this year when it comes to music. There have been so many band reunions, comebacks, and super groups formed, that there is simply no way any one person can make it to every show. So as we dive into Uproar Festival this weekend, many of us will reflect on our own history. Lots of us will be driving to the Gorge, probably blasting Alice in Chains the whole way there, then Jane's Addiction on the way back..."coming down the mountain!"
