American singer/songwriter Evan Dando gave up alcohol after witnessing the horrific terrorists attacks in New York City on September 11th 2001, just two blocks from his Manhattan home.

The Lemonheads frontman and his wife Elizabeth rushed to the roof of their apartment block and watched the drama unfold in the World Trade Center's Twin Towers.

Dando explains, "It was a real mindblower. It was reminiscent for some reason of the end of the first Planet Of The Apes, you know with the Statue Of Liberty.

"It made me quit drinking. I was like, I'm alive. I survived that. It really felt like surviving, being that close.

"You know all the money in the world can't buy a near-death experience and I realised that the one thing holding me back was drinking."
