On this day

1992: A Rolling Stone article by Steve Hochman quotes Neil (speaking with regard to Freddie Mercury's AIDS-related death) as regretfully saying that 'a lot of people think that gays deserve to have this disease.'

2009: Yes debuts on Billboard magazine's U.S. album chart at #32—the highest showing for any PSB album since Very back in 1993.

2013: A big day for PSB fans: the Boys' official website announces the tracklist for their upcoming album Electric, reveals its front-cover artwork, announces the dates and venues for the North American leg of the Electric Tour, and debuts the video for 'Axis,' the album's first single. 'Axis' also goes on sale as a digital download at iTunes on this, the last day of April in the U.S. (though when it becomes available it's actually the first day of May in the U.K.)
