It’s April 5th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
In 1985, an estimated 5000 radio stations across the globe simultaneously played “We Are the World,” the song recorded by a collection of artists under the name USA for Africa to raise money to feed starving people.
In 1994, Kurt Cobain died by suicide in his home in Seattle at the age of 27. He was found three days later with a shotgun on his body, a head wound and a suicide note.
