Why April 4th Matters In Rock History
It’s April 4th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 2003, former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach was fired from the touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar. The Canadian rocker, who was replaced by his understudy, vowed to return to rock and roll.
- In 2008, Stone Temple Pilots revealed that they were reuniting and heading out on a tour – their first in eight years.
- In 1964, the Beatles held all top five placed on the singles chart with “Can’t Buy Me Love” at No. 1, followed by “Love Me Do,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Please Please Me.” They also had another nine singles on the chart.
- In 1981, Styx’s Paradise Theater went to No. 1. It became their fourth album in a row to go triple-platinum, setting a new sales record.
- And, in 1970, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s Déjà Vu was the No. 1 album in the U.S..
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
