This Day In Rock History: July 22nd
1967 Pat Badger (bassist for Extreme) is born in Boston, Massachusetts.
1973 Daniel Jones (instrumentalist of Savage Garden) is born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England, but will be raised in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
2008 Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor foots the bill for the band's seventh studio album, The Slip, which is released digitally on their website for free with the tag, "This one's on me." Fans wanting a physical copy, however, will have to shell out their money for a limited-edition two months later. (NIN also did this four months earlier with the free digital release of Ghosts I–IV, an album made up of almost entirely instrumental, unnamed tracks).
