The Shannon Hoon-Blind Melon documentary is finally coming in 2020

It’s been almost a quarter-century since Shannon Hoon died of an overdose in the back of that tour bus in New Orleans. But Blind Melon fans haven’t forgot the Shannon or the band, continually to fly the flag.

Finally, after years and years in production hell, a documentary on Hoon and the group will appear next year. Called All I Can Say, the project is run by photographer and co-director Danny Clinch–a very close friend of Hoon’s–who began with a Kickstarter program way back in 2015. He raised $100,000.

Clinch had total access to 200 hours of film/video footage, including plenty featuring Hoon’s own voice.

The producers said this: “Created with his own footage, voice and music, this intimate autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. Hoon’s footage provides an inside look into his family, his creative process, his television, his band’s rise to fame, and his struggle with addiction.”

The film has already had one film festival screening with more showings planned for a wider release in 2020.
