Why July 4th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 4th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1982, Ozzy Osbourne married his manager, Sharon Arden, who clearly wasn’t scared off by the rocker biting the head off a bat earlier that year.
In 1969, Grand Funk Railroad played the Atlanta Pop Festival, which was held in Hampton, Georgia. A&R reps from Capitol Records liked what they saw and signed the band.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
