September 11

1967 : Frank Sinatra, who is playing at The Sands casino in Las Vegas, gets in a fight when he is denied credit as part of a policy put in by the new owners. He breaks two teeth in the altercation, and soon takes his talents (and money) to Caesar's Palace.

1974: London's Wembley Stadium plays host to CSNY, Joni Mitchell, and The Band, with a record 50,000 attendance.

1979: The Who play their first concert without longtime drummer Keith Moon, who'd overdosed the previous year. Ex-Faces drummer Kenny Jones sits in during the gig at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey, and will eventually become Moon's full-time replacement.

2001 : Most radio stations simulcast news after the terrorist attacks take place. As stations gradually return to music, they try to be sensitive about what songs they play, but Clear Channel Communications goes overboard with a list of 165 songs they ask their stations to avoid, including "Smooth Criminal" and "What A Wonderful World".
