Why May 14th Matters In Rock History


It’s May 14th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

- In 2008, Metallica kicked off a 26-date North American and European tour at LA’s Wiltern Theatre.

- In 2004, Coldplay singer Chris Martin became a proud father when his then-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, gave birth to a baby girl they named Apple.

- In 1988, the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary celebration held at New York’s Madison Square Garden saw the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reunite with Jason Bonham on drums.

- In 1976, Yardbirds singer Keith Relf died at the age of 33 after getting electrocuted while tuning a guitar that was not properly grounded. The accident happened at his London home.

- And in 2002, We Will Rock You, the musical using songs by Queen, opened in the West End of London. 

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
