Members of My Morning Jacket, Avett Brothers, and the Gaslight Anthem Cover Blind Melon
It's part of a Kickstarter campaign for a documentary on Blind Melon's late frontman, Shannon Hoon
In the final days of his Kickstarter to fund a documentary of archival footage of late Blind Melon frontman Shannon Hoon, photographer and film director Danny Clinch has dangled another carrot to sway possible donors: footage of My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, the Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, and the Avett Brothers’ Seth Avett performing the band’s songs.
James delicately infuses “Sleepyhouse” with warm horns and his signature falsetto, while Avett and Fallon take a more acoustic, D.I.Y. approach for their versions of “St. Andrew’s Fall” and “Mouthful of Cavities,” respectively. Watch them above and below.
