  1. greentree apartments indianapolis ind / 1994 / do not hang with garbage they will go thru trash that they create and find something to gain from it . they will bring you down . (MULDEW) gary b . ☆

  2. Letting the hair grow and wishing to be equal to the Shannon.

    I am the resurrection and the life
    I am the resurrection and the life
    I am the resurrection and the life

  3. I was on mushrooms the other night watching these guys Woodstock 99' performance and Janes Addiction popped into my head. Not that they need comparison. But, listen to this song again and compare. There are a lot of similarities. From insightful lyrics, to vocal range, to the musical stylings and ability. Even Janes following was cult-ish until they re-released Jane Says years later. Anyway, this band was one of the best and most underrated not just of the 90's, but since I've been around. Shannon was a true artist and a damn talented one at that.

  4. Live at Woodstock is faster and whew!!!! Take you on a trip. Not into this type music anymore but LOVE LOVE LOVE Blind Melon. Shannon's vocals are still amazing. Try those vocals yourselves and see….imagine an hour of this awesome frontman RIP, 😢

  5. It sure is unfortunate how many talented musicians and entertainers of times past had themselves issues with addiction and the many forms it takes, usually in the form of substances but not always, and they were regularly afflicted internally. It's as if the broken at heart would rise above the threshold of mediocrity for however brief a time. Only to be taken away from us always too soon. RIP Shannon Hoon, And all others who have had similar life conclusions.

  6. This has a total Jane's Addiction vibe to it. Never really noticed that before. I used to have the Woodstock 94 VHS with this song on it. Jane's Addiction rule

  7. If you are discovering Blind Melon after Shannon died I suggest you listen to seed to a tree. I like them all every album but that one is damn good.

  8. What do you think they would say
    If I stood up and I walked away
    Nobody here really understand me
    And so I'll wave goodbye I'm fine
    Tones of home said
    You don't know the way I'm living
    You don't like me
    Tones of home, tones of home
    And so I'll wave goodbye.
    I'm flyin' I'm flyin' home
    And I always thought this would be
    The land of milk and honey
    Oh but I came to find out
    That it's all hate and money
    And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.
    See I'm so high to you, so I'll fade away
    I said your on your own
    Your mom and daddy said,
    That your sister said, and your brothers saying
    Everybody is saying
    Everybody, is saying I, eye God I gotta go!!
    All my friends patronize me and
    They say yo hey boy!
    Have you found what your looking for.
    It seems they don't really know me 'cause it's here
    And it's what they can't see.
    Compositores: Brad Smith / Christopher Thorn / Christopher John Thorn / Glen Graham / Howard Beschan / Shannon Hoon / Thomas Stevens / Thomas Rogers Stevens

  9. Excelente trabajo de Blinde Melon. Esta es la escena👆 que concluye el video no rain💭. La referencia es brillante 🤟🎸🍀

  10. Thank you for so many years of passion and madness , life it's a box of chocolates , sometimes I really cross the line my apologies to everyone 💓

  11. i cant play this vevo remarket until i know they have full permission of the anticedants parents his rights and ownership and the bands traded name of Blind Melon

  12. I’d rather start a band than become a….. YouTuber, or whatever the hell that is. There are no bands like this anymore because of fortnite.

  13. The old lady looks kinda like the bumble bee girl as a grandma. Pretty cool in a time warp way. Reminiscing of bumble bee land. This video was also made before the "No Rain" video.

  14. Its hard to say for me what my favorite song is by them. Paper scratch is my favorite. But idk the rhythm of this and the vibe makes it #1 for me. Paper scratch gotta be #2. Then Change. I love Blind Melon. I could go on.

  15. Complex music???? Please. Been there some that. Well influenced. He was no genius by far. Very similar to all of the bands “of the day”. They were good-ish but nothing out of the ordinary. Mother Love Bone, Jane’s Addiction, had years !!!!!!! of musical creativity and lyrical wisdom over them. His voice is thin – Fuck drugs. Really.

  16. Such a long time ago ….was a awesome band that brought us some of the most amazing music… Rip Shannon
