Why November 27th Matters In Rock History

It’s November 27th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1970, George Harrison released All Things Must Pass. The triple album included a number of songs that were leftover from Beatles sessions. It would go on to be certified six-times Platinum by the RIAA, making it the best-selling album by a solo Beatle.
In 1986, Bon Jovi had the number one song in the country with “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
In 1970, Black Sabbath and Steel Mill, a band featuring Bruce Springsteen, shared a bill at the Sunshine In in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
In 1981, ads ran in the British press urging music lovers to stop making copies of albums using dual-cassette recorders, stating, “Home taping is wiping out music.”
And in 2010, The Black Keys’ “Tighten Up” started a two-week run on top of the Rock Songs chart.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
