Why July 10th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 10th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1965, The Rolling Stones started a four-week run at number one on the singles chart with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” their first chart topper in the US.
In 1974, David Bowie played the first of five dates at The Tower Theater in Philadelphia, the recordings of which made up the David Live album released later that year.
In 2007, The Smashing Pumpkins released their seventh album, Zeitgeist, their first record since reuniting in 2005, five years after disbanding.
And in 2012, legendary guitarist Slash got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
