    We have a guy on the news, Ron Hoon. They had a bizarre ad campaign about ten years ago where this woman who sounded like she smoked a carton a day yelled out, "Hey Hooner!"

    Just read his Wiki. Was friends with Axl Rose and did some backing vocals on Use Your Illusion I and II.

    I saw him with Blind Melon on the 120 Minutes tour in like 92 or 93. We were up close and he leaned down and had me strum on his guitar. :rip:

    Great band. One of my favorites to kick back and do great drugs to, back in the day.
