Why August 6th Matters In Rock History
By Dave Basner

It’s August 6th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1988, Guns N’ Roses’ debut album, Appetite for Destruction, went to number one after 57 weeks on the chart.
In 1989, U2 bassist Adam Clayton was arrested in Dublin for marijuana possession and intent to supply the drug to another person. His conviction was waived when he donated a ton of cash to a home for victims of domestic abuse.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
