Why January 24th Matters In Rock History
It’s January 24th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1980, a billboard promoting Pink Floyd ’s new album, The Wall , went up on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. It was of a blank wall and each day a brick was “removed” from it to slowly reveal the inside spread and title of the album.
In 1976, Bob Dylan started a five-week run on top of the album chart with Desire .
In 2016, David Bowie ’s final album, Blackstar , topped the charts in both America and the UK.
And in 1995, Van Halen released their Balance LP. It was the last album recorded with singer Sammy Hagar .
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
