Holy shit, are you kidding me!?!? It hasn't been defined yet!?!?! WELL! Shannon was truly one of the greatest musicians ever to live, a real inspiration. His music was transcendental, he could change your mood with a song. His voice was opaque, poignant belittling amazement. Go listen to "No Rain" and "Change" by Blind Melon. You will be hooked. And check out the lyrics below, you will love them. Shannon had a daughter named Nico Blue, but unfortunately, she lost her daddy to drugs in 1995- she was a month old. And the world lost an inspiration and an idol, a second father to all. Rest in peace, Shannon. We all love you, and miss you. You are never forgotten for a day. You keep me dreaming, boy.
Change, by Shannon Hoon.

I don't feel the suns comin' out today

its staying in, its gonna find another way.

As I sit here in this misery, I don't

think I'll ever see the sun from here.

And oh as I fade away,

they'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,

Hey look at him! I'll never live that way.

But that's okay

they're just afraid to change.

When you feel your life ain't worth living

you've got to stand up and

take a look around you then a look way up to the sky.

And when your deepest thoughts are broken,

keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.

And as we all play parts of tomorrow,

some ways will work and other ways we'll play.

But I know we all can't stay here forever,

so I want to write my words on the face of today.

and then they'll paint it

And oh as I fade away,

they'll all look at me and they'll say,

Hey look at him and where he is these days.

When life is hard, you have to change.

No Rain, by Shannon Hoon.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain

I like watchin' the puddles gather rain

And all I can do is just pour some tea for two

and speak my point of view

But it's not sane, It's not sane

I just want some one to say to me

I'll always be there when you wake

Ya know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today

So stay with me and I'll have it made

And I don't understand why I sleep all day

And I start to complain that there's no rain

And all I can do is read a book to stay awake

And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape


All I can say is that my life is pretty plain

ya don't like my point of view

ya think I'm insane

Its not's not sane
