why? how? I understand that the band members could still want to continue with their music, but in the name of Blind Melon? In my memory I will always remember the band as a group that made awesome music together, With Shannon Hoon. I have to say this.... i respect them and idolize all of them. But the thought of the name Blind Melon being used for something different, makes me and my friends cry. LOVELOVELOVE

Maybe the fact that they are playing under the same name is to keep Shannon's memory alive. By them doing this, it also brings new and young people into the greatness of shannon, brad, chris, glen, and rodgers. It's not bad it's fantastic. I saw them and let me tell you, it's exciting to see people come in droves to still see blind melon. This wasn't an opportunity to find a singer through another reality show. It was on a whim, and there just livin man. Let them.

Oh yeah, Shannon died at an unfortunate time for his music. It really was shoved on the back burner cause he passed. Now all that good stuff is gonna be on the fingertips of sooo many people. Now more people can see what you see. And Travis does an amazing job. trust me
