About Blind Melon

Blind Melon is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, active from 1990 to 1999 and 2006 onward. Best remembered for their 1993 single 'No Rain', the group enjoyed critical and commercial success in the early 1990s with their neo-psychedelic take on alternative rock. After releasing two charting albums on Capitol Records and touring extensively, the band was halted in 1995 by the fatal overdose of lead vocalist Shannon Hoon, going on hiatus until officially disbanding four years later. They reformed with new vocalist Travis Warren in 2006, yielding a fourth album. Warren departed two years later, but again rejoined in 2010, allowing the group to return to performing and recording. Blind Melon formed in Los Angeles in March 1990 after West Point, Mississippi transplants Rogers Stevens and Brad Smith, a guitarist and bassist respectively, met vocalist Shannon Hoon, a native of Lafayette, Indiana.
