On this second eve of Rocktober, 2007, Governor of Connecticut Jodi Rell, officially proclaimed this day in history to be “Bruce Springsteen Day”. (Mom, this one’s for you.) The Boss will be ROCKing with his E Street Band at the Hartford Civic Center tonight to open their first tour in four years and to promote their new album Magic, which will return Springsteen officially to the ROCK genre. Just to make you feel old, Springsteen is 58.
And if this was Whocarestober, I’d tell you that the Spice Girls reunion concert in London sold out in 38 seconds. Over 1 mil people registered for the show, a computer chose 20,000.
But it’s Rocktober 2nd! Leon del Muerte of Murder Construct was born on this day in 1977. Happy 30th! As was James Root from Slipknot who is 36! And Bud Gaugh, the drummer from Sublime (now plays in a band called Del Mar), is 40 today.
Happy birthday, rock stars! To see a complete list of everything that has happened on October 2nd, click here.
