Why August 25th Matters In Rock History

It’s August 25th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer gave their debut performance in Plymouth, England.
In 1976, Epic Records released Boston’s self-titled debut album. The record became the fastest-selling debut ever.
In 1979, The Knack started a five-week run on top of the singles chart with “My Sharona.”
In 1986, Paul Simon released his African-influenced record, Graceland.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
