Why May 5th Matters In Rock History
It’s May 5th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1970, Canadian rock band The Guess Who had the top song on the charts with “American Woman.”
- In 1995, former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler was arrested on a felony count of possession of heroin plus two other misdemeanour drug charges.
- In 1996, Rage Against the Machine had the No. 1 album in the country with Evil Empire.
- In 1968, Buffalo Springfield disbanded.
- In 1963, following a recommendation by George Harrison, Dick Rowe, the head of A&R at Decca Records went to see The Rolling Stones play at a club in London. He signed them to his label days later.
- In 1969, Creedence Clearwater Revival released their hit “Bad Moon Rising.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
