9780615252391: A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon Hoon and

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

About the Author:

Greg Prato is a Long Island, New York-–based journalist, whose writing has appeared in such renowned publications as Rolling Stone, All Music Guide, and Classic Rock Magazine. He is the author of several popular books, 'A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon,' 'Touched by Magic: The Tommy Bolin Story,' 'Grunge Is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music, 'No Schlock . . . Just Rock!,' 'The Eric Carr Story,' 'MTV Ruled the World: The Early Years of Music Video,' and 'Sack Exchange: The Definitive Oral History of the 1980s New York Jets.'

Review:

"People who know and love Shannon will enjoy reliving the moments chronicled. Anyone who didn't know him will certainly know him now. You managed to capture the personality of Shannon, the good and the bad, I'm thankful it was mostly good. Thank you for immortalizing my son in print." --Nel Hoon (Shannon Hoon's mother), letter to author

"Probably as close as anyone outside the group will ever come to knowing our story, 'A Devil On One Shoulder' is an honest portrait of the Blind Melon experience as told by those who were there. A great read - thanks Greg." --Glen Graham (Blind Melon drummer)

"Greg, you did a great job on the book, you captured so many details. Maybe too many details. Ha! When my daughter is old enough, I will let her read it. On second thought, maybe I should let her read it after I am dead..." --Brad Smith (Blind Melon bassist)

"I was able to find out things that I never knew before. I really liked the perspective of having all the band's quotes basically in the timeline fashion. And also the perspective of family and friends from what happened. And from such a huge fan of the band, it also brought me back into my fandom. It made me go back to the records and I became an avid listener again of those records. It brought a whole new meaning and level to the records to read the book." -Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria guitarist)

"'A Devil on One Shoulder' offers an unparalleled account for the many fans who were left bewildered by Hoon's untimely death." --subba-cultcha.com

"From its startling jacket image of Shannon Hoon standing on the ledge of a high balcony apparently about to step off, there's an air of melancholic inevitability about Greg Prato's excellent history of Blind Melon." --Classic Rock Magazine, December 2008

"I am absorbed by what already goes down as one of my favorite all-time reads...'A Devil on One Shoulder.' I swear to you, it is a must read. I strongly recommend this. A killer effort." --Jeff Pearlman (Author, 'The Bad Guys Won!')

"Prato not only manages to gather the specifics, but more importantly paints a picture of a band and frontman possessed of brilliance yet troubled demons." --Under the Radar Magazine, Year End Edition 2008

"A Devil on One Shoulder' shows that Blind Melon was more than a one hit wonder band on some 'best of the 90's' show. It's gives you a real feel of what Shannnon really meant to music." --Stone & Double T WXRX, Rockford, IL
