Bob couldn't pull off solos like that in a million years. Hell, just listen to their concurrent solos on Johnny's Gonna Die off Sorry Ma and you can hear the difference right from the beginning of the band's career.

They should have continued as a trio.

Sad what happened to Bob, but he was dead weight.

Yeah I know, Paul > Bob, I agree with you, just felt like mentioning it since I spent most of today listening to the Replacements.

Dougie Hopkins -guitarist for the Gin Blossoms.

Just as one of the great 90's bands, the Gin Blossoms, were finally being rewarded with commercial success, Hopkins alcoholism and depression forced him to quit the band, and he suicided a few months later. Tragic, because New Miserable Experience went on to become a post-REM jangle-rock classic album.

The Gin Blossoms still chruned out some miserable tunes, and reformed last year to release the cracking Major Lodge Victory

Or are you just proud that you know the guy's name from Blind Melon? I mean, that's okay. I'm not sure it's okay to think he belongs on a list with Elvis and Louis Armstrong or even Kurt Cobain.

Hey, what would the video for Don't Cry have been without Hoon on the roof with Axl Rose?

It wouldn't have been a double-flanneled shriek attack, that's what.

I'm sorry, but Jesus will have to sit this one out and let Thunderfingers handle the bass.
