It’s June 14th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1970, Eric Clapton’s band Derek and the Dominoes played their first-ever gig when they performed at London’s Lyceum.
In 1980, Billy Joel started a six-week run at number one on the album chart with Glass Houses. The album went on to go seven-times platinum in America.
In 1975, America went to number one on the singles chart with “Sister Golden Hair.”
In 1976, Chicago released their eighth studio album, their tenth overall, Chicago X.
In 2011, Black Veil Brides released their second album, Set the World on Fire.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
