Journalist Greg Prato is currently working on a book about the history of BLIND MELON. He has already done extensive interviews with all the surviving members as well as those close to the band (members of bands they toured with, producers, friends, etc.).
Prato has written a few articles about BLIND MELON for the Rolling Stone and Billboard magazines and is a friend of the band. The book should be completed sometime in 2007.

Three brand-new BLIND MELON tracks — "Make a Difference", "For My Friends" and "Harmful Belly" — were recently posted online at www.blindmelonmach2.com. Also available at the same location is a video of the band performing the song "Harmful Belly" live in the studio (with the studio recording of the song partly dubbed over the video footage).
11 years since the death of singer Shannon Hoon effectively put an end to BLIND MELON, the group's surviving members — guitarists Christopher Thorn and Rogers Stevens, bassist Brad Smith and drummer Glen Graham — got back together last summer under the BLIND MELON banner, with a new singer, 25-year-old Amarillo, Texas, native Travis Warren.
