It’s November 30th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

In 1966, after a year and a half with the group, guitarist Jeff Beck left The Yardbirds to go on to form The Jeff Beck Group .

In 1979, Pink Floyd released the double album The Wall .

In 1982, Metallica performed their last-ever concert with original bassist Ron McGovney .

In 1977, Bing Crosby ’s 42nd and final Christmas special aired. It featured his memorable duet with David Bowie on “Peace on Earth/ Little Drummer Boy.”

In 1982, Michael Jackson released Thriller , which featured guitarists Eddie Van Halen and Steve Lukather .

In 2000, Creed won big at the first-ever My Vh1 Music Awards, where the band took home four trophies.

And in 2005, System of a Down had the number one album in the country with Hypnotize , their fifth effort and the second half of the Mezmerize / Hypnotize double album.

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
