Why June 9th Matters In Rock History

It’s June 9th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

- In 1972, Bruce Springsteen signed with Columbia Records and started to assemble the E Street Band from various former bandmates in Asbury Park. Together they began work on his first album, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.

- In 1977, George Harrison divorced Pattie Boyd, who would then go on to marry George’s friend, Eric Clapton.

- In 1978, The Rolling Stones released Some Girls, their first album with guitarist Ronnie Wood as a full member.

- In 1989, The Doobie Brothers reformed after a seven-year hiatus. 

- In 2003, Radiohead released their sixth studio album, Hail to the Thief.

- And in 1998, Oasis’ Liam Gallagher got into a brawl with Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall in London. It happened at a hotel bar where Liam, who at the time was 25, approached Mick, who was celebrating his 38th birthday. Gallagher took issue with some things Mick said about the band in a recent interview and berated Hucknall. Mick threw Liam against a wall and security broke them up.

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
