Buitarist discusses new Blind Melon tour, rising fame

lind Melon, currently based in Durham, North Carolina, is preparing to take the world by storm. Their quick rise from obscurity to a spot on the nationwide MTV tour with major college bands BAD II and PiL has tagged them as one of the stars to keep an eye on in the not-so-distant future.

Blind Melon's lead singer, Shannon Horn, is a friend of fellow Indiana native Axl Rose and appeared in the recent video for Guns N' Roses' "Don't Cry," which many people saw as a harbinger of the band's future success. This Thursday, April 16, the band will be at Brandeis University as part of the MTV Tour.
