Présentation de l'éditeur

One of the most tragic stories of the 1990’s rock world was that of singer Shannon Hoon, and his band, Blind Melon. Despite scoring one of the decade’s most enduring singles and videos, “No Rain,”and a quadruple platinum hit with their 1992 self-titled debut album (in addition to touring alongside rock’s biggest names), Hoon could not overcome a dangerous drug addiction. Only two records into a promising career, Hoon was dead from an overdose at the age of 28. ‘A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other’ is the first book to tell the group’s story—culled from over 50 exclusive interviews (including the surviving band members and those closest to the band) and featuring many never-before-seen photos. “I am honored that Greg has painstakingly accounted for what the hell happened during those crazy times. He has summed up all the chaos, jubilation, and paranoia that is Blind Melon.” -Brad Smith, Blind Melon bassist

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From the mouths of those that were there 13 avril 2009
Par vedhead011 - Publié sur
I opened this book and couldn't put it down until I finished it. It truly does tell the story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon, and tells it in the best possibly way; from the mouths of the people that lived it. The story is told in a series of quotes from band members, record company people, family and friends obtained through interviews by the author. And in the case of Hoon, the quotes were taken from published interviews from the 90's. There could no be no purer way for this story to be told. The interviewees were candid and open; they seemed to hold nothing back. Their words and stories spoke so clearly of those times and what Shannon Hoon meant to them that I truly felt that I got to know him and his tendencies through this book. I felt as if I truly had spent those hours not reading a book, but spending time with these people and their friend Shannon. Which made for emotional results even though I knew the end to this story. When the fateful end of Shannon Hoon's life came in this book I immediately felt the loss of him. My heart broke, and I missed him. Just from reading a book 13 and a half years after the event. I do not have the book in front of me as I review it, but someone in there said something along the lines of "everyone who met him thought Shannon was their best friend" and it was easy to see that.

As Shannon Hoon had the most powerful personality of the subjects in the book, and people seemed to speak most about their relationship with him, it is easy to focus on him. But through the honesty of Rogers Stevens, Christopher Thorn, Brad Smith, and Glen Graham you felt closer to them as well. They give valuable details of life in the band Blind Melon, everything from stories from the road to recollections of recording and some song meanings. A casual rock and roll fan will see from this book that Blind Melon was a band, and not just Shannon Hoon.

Your heart really goes out to the people that were close to Shannon Hoon. People whose lives were touched very deeply for knowing him, and who had to deal with the pain of losing him. I extend gratitude to those willing to speak about those times for this project, and credit to the author for the Shannon Hoon quotes he chose to give the singer's perspective of that time in his life with his band. Strongest recommendation for anyone that is a fan of 90's music, and this is a flat out must read for any Blind Melon fan.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Letters from the porcupine, they'll stick straight through you... 11 octobre 2008

A Devil On One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other is a fantastic read. Greg Prato has documented the complete story of one of most underrated bands to ever be labeled a "one hit wonder".

Whether you're a hardcore "Melonhead" or a casual fan of music/rock biographies, the story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon, as captured here, is fascinating.

From Shannon's mother, Nel Hoon to Alice In Chains Jerry Cantrell to Guns N Roses/Velvet Revolver's Duff McKagan (and everyone else in between), the cast of characters paints a vivid picture of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon.

This is a hard book to put down once picked up. I don't think I even blinked during the chapters entitled; October, 21 1995 and Aftermath. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing reading 12 février 2011
Par Joan Casalprim Busquets - Publié sur
I lived the rise and fall of Blind MElon in the 90's, I was in my teens then. Discovering this book and reading it has taken me back to that beautiful time. The book made me rush to the CD collection and listen again to all the Blind Melon production. As I was listening to the songs of the band while reading the book, I got an impressive sensation of one of the best bands I've ever known. Thanks to Greg Prato for such an incredible work. Today I got my copy of "Grunge is dead", I hope it will also be a good book. Greetings from Catalonia!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 MUST READ 1 décembre 2011
Par Terry B - Publié sur
In the early 90's, I had the pleasure of being a part of the Blind Melon extended "family". Let me say that it was a wild roller coaster ride that was captured realistically and authentically in Gregs book. I was personally there for many of the exploits and adventures (good and bad) that were written about and, thanks to Greg, was able to relive and in some cases remember those events. Greg captured the soul of a truly troubled artist with honesty and integrity never turning away from the sometimes harsh character traits that were Shannon. Those that really knew him both loved and hated him at times. If you want to know...really KNOW what it was like to be there, you need to go no further than turning the page. Bravo Greg.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I keep screaming for that glass of lemonade 3 mars 2011
Par Scott E. Lomax - Publié sur
If you are a fan of Blind Melon, this makes for an interesting read. The book is a little slow in some sections and some of the cast of characters could have been edited out.

If you are interested in Blind Melon as a band, this book will not dissapoint. I enjoyed the fact that it does not completely focus on Shannon Hoon and his downward spiral of addiction, if you are looking for that; there are some good chapters too.

One thing I didn't realize before reading this book:
Axl Rose and his popularity at the time, played a very major role in the formation and success of Blind Melon.

I was 19 in 1995, I was a fan of Blind Melon then, but have to say that in the last two years I have just realized how good 'Soup' and 'Nico' really are, and how well they have held up over the last 16 years.

I thought there were pictures in this book Kindle edition had no pictures.
