Why October 23rd Matters In Rock History
It’s October 23rd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1976, Chicago started a two-week run on top of the singles chart with “If You Leave Me Now,” their first No. 1 song.
- In 1976, Led Zeppelin made their US television debut on Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, where they played “Black Dog” and “Dazed and Confused.”
- In 1995, Def Leppard got a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records by playing three gigs in three continents in 24 hours, performing in Tangier, Morocco; London, England; and Vancouver.
- In 1989, Nirvana played their first-ever European show when they appeared at Northeast England’s Riverside Club, kicking off a 36-date European tour.
- And in 2001, Bush released their album Golden State. The commercially disappointing set would be the band’s last record for 10 years.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
