There are several prominent men named Stephen Bishop:. After briefly attempting to continue, Blind Melon soon broke up and the various members went on to other projects. With some unreleased vocals in the vaults, the remaining members released Nico in 1996 (see 1996 in music) with the profits going to a program that helps musicians with drug and alcohol addiction. Hoon was found dead of an overdose on October 21, 1995. Against the advice of Hoon's drug counselor, Blind Melon went on tour.
In 1995, Blind Melon also contributed the song "Out on the Tiles" to the Encomium tribute album to Led Zeppelin. While Hoon checked into rehab, the album, Soup, was released in 1995 (see 1995 in music), but sold poorly. Hoon would later admit that he had no memory of the recording session. Hoon and the rest of the band began recording their sophomore album in New Orleans with producer Andy Wallace.
After opening for Neil Young and Lenny Kravitz, Blind Melon's own tour was cut short due to Hoon's escalating drug abuse. Subsequently, Blind Melon went platinum four times. Their debut album, Blind Melon, produced by Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam) sold poorly until the single and music video for "No Rain" hit the airwaves and became a smash success, along with the popular video which featured the equally popular Bee Girl. Hoon and old friend Axl Rose re-met, and Hoon sang back-up on several Guns n' Roses tracks, including "Don't Cry".
Blind Melon signed to Capitol Records in 1991 (see 1991 in music) and recorded an unreleased demo. Also 'Blind Melon Chitlin' was the name of a fictional bluesman appearing in a routine on the self titled Cheech and Chong LP. The name Blind Melon describes some hippies from Mississippi, as used (or coined) by Brad Smith's father. Blind Melon was an American rock and roll band from the 1990s, composed of Shannon Hoon, Brad Smith, Glen Graham, Rogers Stevens and Christopher Thorn.
