Why December 25th Matters In Rock History

It’s December 25th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1968, Led Zeppelin arrived in the United States for the very first time in preparation of their debut North American tour. The group was paid an average of 15-hundred dollars for each show.
In 1994, Green Day played Madison Square Garden, just a few months after only playing small clubs. At the gig, singer Billie Joe Armstrong wore only socks and a strategically-placed guitar.
And in 1996, The People vs. Larry Flynt, co-starring Courtney Love, was released.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
