Hyde Park has always been a cultural center for the city of London. The massive city park, which has long been a meeting grounds for demonstrators, has a functioning speaker’s corner and occasionally, an active stage. This stage would have been particularly active on the sweltering night of July 5th, 1969, when international icons the Rolling Stones first took the stage to commemorate the death of bandmate Brian Jones, whose death had happened just two days prior.

This is how rock ‘n roll should be!!  There is nothing more rock ‘n roll than a musician getting pissed and storming off the stage in the middle of their set right?  Just a week after Green Day guitarist and lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong melted down at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Vegas and launched into a profanity laced tirade there is another big name musician following Billie Joe’s lead.
