Why July 6th Matters in Rock History

It’s July 6th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1964, A Hard Day’s Night premiered in London.
In 1973, in the UK, Queen released their debut single, “Keep Yourself Alive.” The song failed to make the charts.
In 1968, The Rolling Stones topped the singles chart with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”
In 1985, Phil Collins had the number one song in the country with “Sussudio,” his third track to top the charts.
And in 2012, U2 bassist Adam Clayton’s former personal assistant was sentenced to seven years in prison for embezzling 3.8-million dollars from him to fund a lavish lifestyle.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
