Why February 23rd Matters In Rock History

It's February 23rd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

- In 1978, The Eagles received the Grammy for Record of the Year for "Hotel California." The band refused to perform during the ceremony because they didn’t think they were going to win. 

- In 2006, the surviving members of Alice in Chains announced that they were reforming the band, four years after singer Layne Staley died.

- In 2010, Stone Temple Pilots revealed that they completed their self-titled comeback album, the group's first record since 2001.

- In 1978, Whitesnake made their live debut at the Sky Bird Club in Nottingham, England.

- And in 2011, the Foo Fighters released "Rope," the first single off their new album, Wasting Light.

And that's what happened today in rock history.
