Why April 29th Matters in Rock History

It’s April 29th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1989, Jon Bon Jovi married his childhood sweetheart, Dorothea Hurley, on the steps of Las Vegas’ Graceland Chapel.
In 1993, famed guitarist and producer Mick Ronson died from liver cancer at the age of 46.
And in 2003, Pearl Jam bought a 14-hundred square-mile area of rainforest in Madagascar to offset the 57-hundred tons of greenhouse gas emissions they estimated their latest North American tour had incurred.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
