Why May 24th Matters In Rock History
It’s May 24th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1974, David Bowie put out his eighth studio album, Diamond Dogs.
- In 1970, Peter Green quit Fleetwood Mac. The fame and fortune that came with the band’s success led to Green’s mental health issues and his decision to leave.
- In 1988, Van Halen’s album OU812 was released.
- In 2010, Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was found dead in a hotel in Des Moines, Iowa at age 38. He had overdosed on painkillers.
- In 2007, the Arctic Monkeys won Best Album at the Ivor Novello awards for their record, Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not. The event also saw Amy Winehouse win Best Contemporary Song for her hit single, “Rehab.”
- In 1975, Earth, Wind and Fire had their first and only No. 1 song when “Shining Star” topped the charts.
- And in 2005, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne put the Beverly Hills house featured in their hit reality series The Osbournes up for sale.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
