Dear Reader:

Wyman's article on Shannon Hoon's death [Hitsville, November 3] could use a little research. The song from which Wyman quotes, "Skinned," was written about a serial killer. For Wyman to try to turn these lyrics into Hoon's personal philosophy is wrong. Wyman has no insight into this song, and his flippant quote does a disservice to Shannon's memory and to the fans of Blind Melon.
