Why April 27th Matters In Rock History


It’s April 27th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

- In 1981, Ringo Starr married actress Barbara Bach.

- In 2009, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament was robbed outside of the Atlanta studio where the band was recording. The knife-wielding assailants got away with Ament’s passport, $3,000 U.S. in cash and $4,320 in property.

- In 1994, Chicago had their third No. 1 album with Chicago VII

- In 1999, British band The Verve, best known for their song “Bittersweet Symphony,” announced that they had split up. They’d reunite in 2007 for a year before hanging it up again.

- In 1986, the No. 1 song in the U.S. was Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love.”

- And in 2010, Billy Corgan launched a Twitter tirade against Courtney Love, accusing her of not writing her own songs and abandoning her daughter. 

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
