Someone sent me a link to this video and it reminded me of how much I miss Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon. I hope he has found some peace in the beyond, but it really irks me that we lost such a monumental soul when the music scene and the world as a whole needed it most.
Sometimes I feel anger, sadness, or just plain disappointment that a light so bright can be extinguished by a careless overdose. I suppose artists give so much of themselves through their medium, that sometimes their reckless actions are misconstrued as selfishness.
Shannon, if you’re out there… this one is for you!
