It’s January 7th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1970, farmer Max Yasgur, the owner of the Woodstock festival site, was sued by his neighbors for 35-thousand dollars in property damages.
In 2003, Ozzy Osbourne renewed his vows with wife Sharon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. However, during the ceremony, a 15-thousand dollar diamond necklace the couple planned to raffle off was pilfered.
In 1971, Black Sabbath released Paranoid in America.
In 1980, Pink Floyd released “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2).”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
