This Day In Rock History: July 19th
1948 Keith Godchaux (keyboardist for Grateful Dead throughout the '70s) is born in Seattle, Washington, but will grow up in Concord, California.
1985 Joan Jett calls up-and-coming heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson before his fight with Larry Sims, which Tyson wins handily. The superstitious Tyson insists on getting a call from Jett before every fight, which he does until breaking tradition for his bout against Buster Douglas on February 11, 1990 - Tyson's first loss.
1994 The Rolling Stones release Voodoo Lounge.
