Welcome to another edition of Today in Boston ROCK, where I, Adam 12, spotlight Very Important Days In Rock History. June 7th is one.

  • 1963

    June 7, 1963: Gordon James Gano is born in New York City. He’d move with his family to Wisconsin at the age of 10 and, by the age of 20, would release his first album with Violent Femmes. I talked to Gordon Gano just last year and he was an excellent interview.

  • 1966

    June 7, 1966: Eric Kretz is born in San Jose, CA. Best-known as the drummer for Stone Temple Pilots, let’s flashback to him pounding the skins in Worcester last year.

  • 1967

    June 7, 1967: David Michael Navarro is born in Santa Monica, CA. You could easily make an argument for Dave Navarro as the guitar god of the ’90s alternative rock era based solely on his work with Jane’s Addiction and that one Red Hot Chili Peppers album everyone likes to forget. No matter where you lie on the issue, one thing’s for certain: he is indeed an ageless wonder.

  • 1994

    June 7, 1994: Stone Temple Pilots release their sophomore album Purple on drummer Eric Kretz’s 28th birthday. Let me take you on a tour through the 25th anniversary edition.
