Why November 30th Matters In Rock History
It’s November 30th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 1966, after a year and a half with the band, guitarist Jeff Beck left The Yardbirds to go on to form The Jeff Beck Group.
- In 1979, Pink Floyd released the double album The Wall.
- In 1982, Metallica performed their last-ever concert with original bassist Ron McGovney.
- In 1977, Bing Crosby’s 42nd and final Christmas special aired. It featured his memorable duet with David Bowie on “Peace on Earth/ Little Drummer Boy.”
- In 1982, Michael Jackson released Thriller, which featured guitarists Eddie Van Halen and Steve Lukather.
- In 2000, Creed won big at the first-ever My Vh1 Music Awards, where the band took home four trophies.
- And in 2005, System of a Down had the No. 1 album in the country with Hypnotize, their fifth effort and the second half of the Mezmerize/Hypnotize double album.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
