Why July 13th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 13th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1968, Black Sabbath performed their first show ever, playing as Earth, their name before changing it to Sabbath. It took place at a blues club in Birmingham, England.
In 1973, Queen released their self-titled debut album.
And in 1997, Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis underwent five hours of surgery following a motorcycle accident in LA.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
