Why March 13th Matters In Rock History
It’s March 13th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1977, Iggy Pop kicked off the North American leg of The Idiot World Tour at Montreal's Le Plateau Theatre with David Bowie on keyboards and backing vocals. The opening act was Blondie.
- In 1995, Radiohead released their second album, The Bends. The record spawned five charting singles including “High and Dry” and “Fake Plastic Trees.”
- In 2000, Blink-182 had to cut their European tour short after singer Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker contracted strep throat.
- In 1993, Eric Clapton started a three-week run at No. 1 with his album, Unplugged.
- And in 2006, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Black Sabbath, Blondie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Sex Pistols and Miles Davis.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
