Why July 23rd Matters in Rock History

It’s July 23rd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history.
In 1963, Neil Young participated in his first recording session in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
In 1988, after 49 weeks on the album chart, Def Leppard’s Hysteria went to number one.
In 2001, 59-year-old Paul McCartney announced that he was engaged to 33-year-old activist and former model Heather Mills.
And in 2011, Amy Winehouse was found dead at the age of 27 from alcohol intoxication.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
