September 15th

1968 The Doors are forced to perform without Jim Morrison at a concert in Amsterdam. While Jefferson Airplane was performing ‘Plastic Fantastic Lover’, Morrison, stoned on some hash given to him by a fan, appeared on stage and began dancing. As the group played faster and faster, Morrison spun around wildly until he finally fell senseless on the stage at Marty Balin’s feet. Morrison was unable to perform his set and was hospitalized while keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, was forced to sing all the vocals.

1978Bob Dylan kicks off the longest US tour of his career in Augusta, Maine, playing the first night of sixty-five gigs in sixty-two cities.

1997U2 is ordered by a French court to pay roughly $32,000 to a 34 year old man after he lost his hearing from standing too close to a loudspeaker at a U2 concert in 1993.

2008 Pink Floyd original keyboard player and founder member Rick Wright dies at the age of 65 from cancer. Wright appeared on their first album, ‘The Piper at the Gates of Dawn’. Just three years prior to his death the full band reunited, for the first time in 24 years, at the Live 8 charity concert in London.
