It’s January 22nd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1972, Don McLean’s album, American Pie, started a seven-week run at number one on the charts. The record was dedicated to Buddy Holly, a childhood icon of McLean’s.
In 1977, Wings went to number one on the album chart with their live set, Wings Over America.
And in 1993, Metallica kicked off their 77-date Nowhere Else to Roam world tour at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
