It’s July 4th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1982, Ozzy Osbourne married his manager, Sharon Arden, who clearly wasn’t scared off by the rocker biting the head off a bat earlier that year.
In 1995, Foo Fighters released their debut album, which was the result of a week-long studio session between Dave Grohl and musician/producer Barrett Jones not long after the death of Grohl's Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain. The Platinum-certified record featured twelve songs, including "This Is A Call," "I'll Stick Around," "For All The Cows" and "Big Me."
In 1969, Grand Funk Railroad played the Atlanta Pop Festival, which was held in Hampton, Georgia. A&R reps from Capitol Records liked what they saw and signed the band.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
