It’s October 11th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1969, the number-one album in America was Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Green River.
In 1995, Peter Frampton released Frampton Comes Alive II, the sequel to his 1976 multi-platinum record, Frampton Comes Alive.
In 2006, singer Justin Hawkins announced that he left The Darkness to focus on his drug rehabilitation.
And in 2006, rock made a comeback with Evanescence scoring the top album on the Billboard 200 with The Open Door and The Killers taking the two spot with Sam’s Town.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
