Why December 9th Matters In Rock History
By Dave Basner
December 9, 2022
It’s December 9th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1972, The Moody Blues started a five-week run at number one on the chart with their seventh album, Seventh Sojourn.
In 1989, Billy Joel started a two-week run on top of the singles chart with “We Didn’t Start the Fire.”
In 1966, Cream released its debut album, Fresh Cream.
In 2000, U2 made their first-ever appearance on Saturday Night Live, playing “Beautiful Day” and “Elevation.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
