July 9 in Music History

On this day today:

1946 - Bon Scott, born Ronald Belford Scott in Kirriemuir, Scotland, later moves to Australia where he grows up. It is in Australia that he meets brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, eventually becoming the lead singer of their iconic rock band, AC/DC.

1955 - Bill Haley & His Comets' "Rock Around The Clock" makes history as the first rock song to reach #1 on the Billboard Pop chart, maintaining its position for eight weeks.
1957 - Marc Almond, known as the lead singer of Soft Cell, is born Peter Mark Sinclair Almond in Southport, Lancashire, England.

1959 - Jim Kerr, the lead singer of Simple Minds, is born in Toryglen, Glasgow, Scotland.

1962 - Before achieving fame, Bob Dylan records "Blowin' In The Wind" at Columbia Records' studios in New York City. The song isn't released until May 27, 1963, when it features on his second album, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan."
1964 - Courtney Love, born Courtney Michelle Harrison, enters the world in San Francisco, California.

1974 - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young launch their reunion tour with a four-hour performance in Seattle, marking their first tour together since 1970. This tour becomes the first rock stadium tour, although the band's subtle, acoustic style isn't ideally suited for such large venues.
1974 - Rush signs a deal with Mercury Records, who are captivated by their self-titled debut album. The album, initially released independently, features the standout track "Working Man," which garners significant attention and helps secure the record deal.
1975 - Jack White, the lead singer and guitarist of The White Stripes, is born John Anthony Gillis in Detroit, Michigan. He adopts the surname "White" when he marries his bandmate, Meg White.

1988 - Cheap Trick, who hadn't seen a hit since the '70s, achieves a #1 in America with "The Flame," marking their entry into the power ballad trend of the late '80s.

2006 - Muse began a two-week stint at No. 1 on the UK album chart with "Black Holes & Revelations," their fifth album release and second to top the chart.
2009 - In an article published in The Guardian, Leonard Cohen, the writer of "Hallelujah," expresses his feelings about the song being overplayed. "I think it's a good song, but I think too many people sing it," he remarks candidly.

2019 - After years of estrangement that kept Ann and Nancy Wilson apart, Heart reunites for their Love Alive tour, starting with a concert in St. Louis. The tour features an all-female lineup of support acts including Joan Jett, Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile, and Elle King.
