It’s March 19th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1971, Jethro Tull released their fourth studio album, Aqualung.
In 2002, a flight attendant testified atR.E.M.guitarist Peter Buck’s trial for air rage. She claimed she was “scared to death” that the rocker might stab someone after hiding a knife up his sleeve during an alleged in-air rampage on a British Airways flight. Buck was later acquitted.
And in 2002, The Strokes got into a fistfight with a record executive in Paris. The RCA employee was trying to make the exhausted group appear on a TV show when singer Julian Casablancas allegedly hit him.
And that’s what happened today in rock history.
