Why July 16th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 16th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 2014, guitarist Johnny Winter passed away at age 70.
In 1962, The Beach Boys signed to Capitol Records.
And in 2007, The White Stripes played their shortest live show ever. It took place in Newfoundland, Canada where Jack White played a single C-sharp note accompanied by a bass drum and crash cymbal hit from Meg White.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
