    <a href="">Blind Melon</a> is kind of a 
    unique band guitar-wise: they had two guitarists
    that both played rhythm and lead, sometimes interchangeably. If you omit
    one of the guitar parts, the song sounds like trash. "The whole is
    greater than the sum of its parts", or whatever. A very synergistic collection.
    Blind Melon is most famous for their hit 
    <a href=""><em>No Rain</em></a>
    and its wildly popular 
    <a href="">"Bee Girl" music video</a>.

    Like most bands of that era,
    <a href="">one of the band members</a> 
    died of heroin or cocaine or speed or
    <a href="">all 
    three</a>. So we got two albums and a
    "B-sides" thing. But <em>Seed to a Tree</em>, off of their 1992 self-titled
    <a href="">debut album</a>, might be the most
    "hard rock" song that they did. It has two pretty sweet solos in
    it back-to-back, the first kind of a hard rock-blues thing, and the
    second a bunch of gratuitous pentatonics with a wah pedal.
    The first solo was performed by 
    <a href="">Rogers Stevens</a> 
    and the second by Christopher Thorn.
