Why May 3rd Matters In Rock History


It’s May 3rd and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:

In 1984, the vintage line-up of Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord and Paice reunited as Deep Purple

In 1980, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band were on top of the chart, starting a six-week run at number one with their record, Against the Wind.

In 2006, Godsmack topped the album charts with their fourth effort, the aptly titled IV.

In 1975, Chicago started a two-week run at number one on the album charts with ChicagoVIII. It marked their third number one.

And that’s what happened today in rock history.
