No Rain

It's been raining all day, which is a welcome relief from the heat we've experienced lately. But for some reason I can't get Blind Melon's 1993 folk-rock ballad 'No Rain' out of my head. So just to infect you all with the same melodic nostalgia here it is.

Blind Melon were a band famous for their one hit and their aversion, it would seem, to haircuts. The band came to a premature demise with the death of lead singer Shannon Hoon, who died from a cocaine overdose on October 21, 1995. Having previously joked about becoming a member of the notorious '27 Club', Hoon narrowly avoided induction by dying less than a month after his 28th birthday.

EC - 'I like watching the puddles gather rain...'
