Why November 29th Matters In Rock History
It’s November 29th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 2001, George Harrison of the Beatles died from lung cancer at the age of 58.
- In 1986, Bon Jovi went to No. 1 on the singles chart with “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
- In 2003, Peter Gabriel, Bono and others performed in Cape Town, South Africa as part of Nelson Mandela’s 46664 campaign to raise AIDS awareness in Africa.
- In 1982, Metallica played their first headlining show. The gig marked the live debut of their hit song “Whiplash.”
- In 1992, U2’s first TV special, U2’s Zoo TV Outside Broadcast, aired.
- And in 2000, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. came to the rescue of a motorcyclist who had been in an accident. Mullen saw the wreckage, stopped to call for help and waited for an ambulance to arrive.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
