Over the last couple of days, we've looked at some Houstonians' best concerts and experiences from Numbers over the course of its 35-year history. Its legacy as a center of the excellent local gothic-music scene, as well as a unique size and scope that attracts an impressive array of touring acts, has continuously ensured Numbers' place as one of Houston's most legendary music venues.
But it's the darker memories associated with Numbers that are the focus of this final cycle.
Probably the most famous death associated with Numbers is that of the late Shannon Hoon, lead singer of Blind Melon. Hoon, who had recently become a father to a little girl named Nico, sought to rehabilitate his drug use and had a drug counselor accompany him on the road. The counselor didn't last long, and was dismissed shortly before Blind Melon played its last show at Numbers on October 20, 1995.
