! ENTERTAINMENT HISTORY !

------------------------------------

On Nov. 20, 1966, the musical "Cabaret" opened on Broadway.

In 1970, Kinks singer Ray Davies re-recorded one word for the single "Apeman." The song contained the word "foggin'," which sounded too much like an expletive.

In 1973, Who drummer Keith Moon collapsed twice during a concert in San Francisco, apparently because of jet lag. Guitarist Pete Townshend asked for a volunteer from the audience to finish the set -- and got one.

In 1983, an estimated 100 million people watched the controversial ABC movie "The Day After," which depicted the outbreak of nuclear war.

In 1990, the two performers known as Milli Vanilli held a press conference to discuss the lip-synching scandal that cost them their Grammy. Rob Pilatus (pih-LAY'-tuhs) told kids to get a good lawyer if they want to get into show business.

In 1994, musician David Crosby got a liver transplant.
