What makes September 15 a cursed day in rock? For starters, the death of three big-name rock stars. But there’s more to it.
Throughout the calendar, there are Very Important Days In Rock History. I spotlight them regularly with my Today in Boston ROCK feature. As a matter of fact, we’ve had a pair of big days in just the last two weeks. September 12 saw the anniversary of three major rock releases, as did August 25. And while were on the subject, July 27 might just be the biggest of all Very Important Days In Rock History. We give you 14 reasons why right here.
But what about the other side of the coin? What about the days where we’re not celebrating the birthdays of beloved rockers, or anniversaries of our favorite albums? What about the dark days? That’s what September 15 is. It’s cursed! Over a 15-year span, the rock pantheon lost not one, not two, but three huge names. And the last of those crushing rock deaths occurred only three years ago. If I were a rocker by profession, I’d be staying in, locking my doors, and having someone test my food before taking a bite myself every time the 15th of September popped up on my calendar.
September 15: A Cursed Day in Rock
So who exactly makes up this trio of doomed souls? Scroll down to find out. But, as I mentioned earlier, there’s more to the 15th of September. I dug a little deeper and found a few “rock stars of the screen” that also met their demise on this cursed day. So you’ll get to meet them, too. And let all of this serve as a warning of sorts: if you aspire to any level of fame, do not, under any circumstances, leave your home on the 15th day of September.
