It’s July 1st and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1998, the White Zombie song “Thunder Kiss ‘65” was played at ear-splitting levels for four hours straight from a van parked outside of Barbra Streisand’s Malibu villa to ward off paparazzi during the singer’s wedding to actor James Brolin.
In 1968, The Band released their debut album, Music from Big Pink, which included the group’s first hit single, “The Weight.”
In 1983, a New Jersey-based quintet called Bon Jovi signed to Mercury Records.
In 2003, Kid Rock ended his relationship with Pam Anderson.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
