That's right. I got my band a spot on the same showbill as Blind Melon. They're back together with a new vocalist and starting their 2008 tour on the 28th.

We'll be playing with them at the Webster Theater in Hartford, CT on the 29th of February.

You don't understand...the three of us have been idolizing these guys since we were kids.
Beat on.

That's great news! Cheers to you and your band.

However, Blind Melon without Shannon Hoon is like Led Zep without Robert Plant. Then again, look what Tim "the Ripper" Owens did for Judas Priest. You never know what can happen.

Their new stuff is actually really really good. I like how their new vocalist doesn't try to be like Shannon.
