Why July 27th Matters In Rock History
It’s July 27th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1991, Canada’s Bryan Adams started a seven-week run on top of the U.S. singles chart with “(Everything I Do), I Do It For You.”
- In 1976, Bruce Springsteen sued his manager, Mike Appel, for fraud and mismanagement. Appel counter-sued and the legal action kept Springsteen from recording for 15 months, time he spent touring. The case would later be settled out of court.
- In 1974, Lynyrd Skynyrd released “Sweet Home Alabama.”
- In 2010, Avenged Sevenfold released their fifth studio album, Nightmare.
- And in 1983, Metallica began their first tour. The trek was called Kill ‘Em All for One and ended on Sept. 3.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
