How Elton And Bernie Have Observed 9/11

Written by Chief Editor.

It's been two decades since four planes were hijacked and struck the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania.

 
On the 20th of October, Elton, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton, the Who, Jerry Seinfeld and many others appeared at Madison Square Garden for the Concert for New York City. Besides aiding victims and rescue workers from the attacks on the World Trade Center, the show was an attempt to honour the first responders from the New York City Fire Department and New York City Police Department, their families, those who died, and those who had been part of the rescue and recovery efforts.
 
On the 12th anniversary of September 11, Richie Sambora released a new song, Engine 19, which he co-wrote with Bernie Taupin. The piano and guitar ballad tells the story of a family of New York firemen through the eyes of one of the brothers.
 
''With deepest compassion, Bernie Taupin and I wrote this song dedicated to victims' families and heroes of 9/11,'' Sambora tweeted.
