Major Update On Shannon Hoon Film, Has Blind Melon Member Quit Band?


Blind Melon guitarist Christopher Thorn discussed Danny Clinch’s new Shannon Hoon film in a new Long Island Pulse interview with Greg Prato.

“I just hung out with Danny last week and he was saying they’ve been carving on it and carving on it. I know at one point, it was like a five-hour cut, and they had to get it down to a proper hour-and-a-half cut. But it’s all really good stuff. I’ve seen some clips and it’s going to be great. It’s the most powerful footage you will see of Shannon, because it doesn’t get any more intimate than somebody filming their life.”

He also discussed bassist Brad Smith’s status in the band.

“Brad is doing Brad for now, that is all I can say about that. We’re kind of working that out right now and he seems to be busy doing other projects. We’re really excited about writing and he didn’t have the time. We just have been writing without him at this point.”

Blind Melon continue to tour with lead singer Travis Warren.
