Blues Traveler To Discuss Future, Popper Says

Blues Traveler, The Who, Violent Femmes, Dave Stewart, Bono, Wyclef Jean, George Clinton, Joan Osborne, Kris Kristofferson...

Blues Traveler singer John Popper told radio talk-show host

Howard Stern on Wednesday (Sept. 8) that the band would meet Friday to

discuss its future, following the death last month of 31-year-old bassist

Bobby Sheehan. A spokesperson for the band's management company

had no comment on any band meetings, but said there would be an

announcement from the group soon. Before Sheehan's death, the rock band

was planning to record its follow-up to Straight On Till Morning

(1997). Popper released his first solo album, Zygote, last week.
