As a charity dedicated to helping those who work in music and live events affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction, we’re proud to raise awareness of ‘All I can Say,’ a unique documentary following Shannon Hoon, lead singer of 90’s rock band Blind Melon who filmed himself religiously from 1990 – 1995 with a video camera, recording until a few hours before his sudden death from a drug overdose at the age of 28.
The film captures Shannon’s personal life and struggle with alcoholism, drug use and mental health, as well as key cultural moments such as the 1992 LA riots and the death of Kurt Cobain. Created solely with his own footage, voice and music, this rare autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Hoon’s last work, completed 23 years after his death.
Watch the trailer below.
‘All I Can Say’ is released in cinemas throughout the UK on Friday 8th April. Click here for further information and to book tickets.
