If you only know Blind Melon for "No Rain," you really don't know the expanse of their musical abilities.

One of my favorite groups in the mid-90s, the band hit an abrupt halt after the overdose of singer Shannon Hoon.

I've got an interview with guitarist Rogers Stevens tomorrow - keep an eye out for the story in Creative Loafing in the coming weeks.

At a recent gig in Chicago, Hoon's 12-year-old daughter joined the band on stage for "No Rain" and my favorite Blind Melon song, "Change." Gives me chills...
