It’s September 9th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1971, John Lennon released his second solo album, Imagine. It became his first number-one album.
In 1999, Korn won the Moon Man for Best Rock Video for “Freak on a Leash” at the MTV Video Music Awards.
In 1999, The Smashing Pumpkins announced that bassist D’Arcy Wretzky had left the band after recording her parts for their album Machina/The Machines of God.
In 1992, Krist Novoselic knocked himself unconscious during the MTV Video Music Awards after throwing his bass in the air and getting it on the head with it.
And that’s what happened today in rock history
