After many years in the works, a documentary that using video footage shot by and about Blind Melon’s Shannon Hoon is expected to be released in 2020. All I Can Say had a test screening at 2019’s Tribeca Film festival and was created with footage the late frontman conceived and shot shot between 1990 to 1995. His friend and photographer, and former touring bandmate Danny Clinch had over 200 hours of footage. He created a Kickstarter back in 2015 to fund a film made from the clips. The film currently screening at festivals but will have a wider release in 2020. Hoon died of a drug overdose on October 21st, 1995. The band has continued without him sporadically ever since. Clinch is a well-known photographer and documentary filmmaker who has helmed many films including two award-winning concert films and documentaries about Pearl Jam.

In a Rolling Stone interview back in 2015, Clinch says, “He was really an endearing character. He could just become your best friend straight away. His energy was great. He was really creative and super friendly. He definitely liked to have a good time and he enjoyed the rock & roll lifestyle for sure.”
