Hell Song is pretty cool song. Rollin On. Stuff like Snafu only Izzy would do. Just Don't Know seems like his best riff since Brownstone.
River opens with a couple of decent Izzy rockers. River is a classic song.
River and Like a Dog are worth checking out.
Thanks for that.
Blind Melon are one of my favourite bands, and one of those bands I've teetered on going to GnR geek levels with. I've always found it interesting, that Axl has more than once referenced Hoon covering Don't Cry - however I'm not sure how he would have heard it, GNR played it before AFD was released but Hoon wouldn't have been around to watch these shows during that time as he was Indiana based. From reading of Blind Melon he wasn't mates with Axl & Izzy back in Indiana either. So makes me think Axl is just adding a bit of myth and stuff in his way of supporting a young dude from his hometown starting out.
It's all irrellavant anyways and doesn't matter. Shannon Hoon was an awesome singer, great lyrics too, and a great element to great band.
