RIP: An Interview with Shannon Hoon

Sylvie Simmons, Request, 1996

SHANNON HOON, Blind Melon vocalist, died on a tour bus on October 21st in a hotel parking lot in New Orleans. To complete the rock ‘n’ roll legend, his corpse was discovered by Axl of Guns N’Roses — childhood friend, travelling companion, equally hard-living rock ‘n’ roller and every bit as cynical about the crazy world in which they suddenly found themselves millionaires.
