Why January 22nd Matters In Rock History
By Dave Basner
January 20, 2023
It’s January 22nd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1972, David Bowie came out as bisexual in an interview with British music newspaperMelody Maker.
In 1977, Wings went to number one on the album chart with their live set, Wings Over America.
And in 1993, Metallica kicked off their 77-date Nowhere Else to Roam world tour at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
