Education Fund Established For Shannon Hoon's Infant Daughter

There is no update on the Shannon Hoon tragedy, other than that there

is a private service scheduled for family and close friends this week,

and of course Blind Melon's current tour has been canceled.

Predictably, all of the bands future plans are in limbo--since the

band members all remain in a state of shock. Shannon Hoon's family has

established an education fund for Hoon's four month old daughter, Nico

Blue. Those who would like to contribute, can send donations to the

following address:
