Why March 9th Matters In Rock History

It’s March 9th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1987, U2 released their breakthrough album,The Joshua Tree.
In 2007, Boston singer Brad Delp committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning at his New Hampshire home. He was found with a note clipped to his shirt that read, “Mr. Brad Delp. I am a lonely soul.”
And in 1985, REO Speedwagon started a three-week run on the singles chart with “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
