    I was listening to the tragically underrated "Soup" album last night and got to thinking: What happened to the other members of the band after Shannon Hoon passed on?

    I know the bassist(?) was involved with Unified Theory, who released a solid album in 2000, but is there any other post-BM music to speak of?

    Whaddya know?

    All leads appreciated!

    I had an opportunity to hang with Brad Smith last year in San Francisco at a Unified Theory gig. I'm transcribing my interview with him now. Here's a pic of him playing his beloved Gibson Triumph bass.

    Thanks, Dude!

    I just downloaded the MP3s from the Abandon Jalopy Website and they sound excellent. I've always loved Brad's BM bass playing but didn't realize what a multi-talented musician he is. Killer stuff!

    Now I have to go dig up my Unified Theory disk and give it fresh listen...

    Brad was more involved with writing the BM material than I thought. He's a really cool bro and I likewise love his work with "AJ".
