Why April 18th Matters in Rock History

It’s April 18th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1992, Def Leppard’s Adrenalize started a five-week run on top of the album chart.
In 2006, a sale of Elton John’s clothes raised more than $700,000 for the singer’s AIDS charity.
In 1995, Oasis drummer Tony McCarroll was told by phone that he was out of the band.
In 1983, the number one song in America was Dexys Midnight Runners’ “Come on Eileen.”
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
