When Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble welcomed Jimmie Vaughan to join them on stage April 15, 1984 at the Austin Opera House to help them perform "Cold Shot", Stevie's big brother was actually a bigger star then by virtue of anchoring the butt-rocking guitar slot in the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Watching and listening to Paul McCartney, normally the effervescently sweet post-War embodiment of that "all is well" British sentiment, deliver his sober introduction to the song "Lady Madonna" during the Global At Home: Together telecast, was as powerful as the performance itself.

U2's "Until the End of the World", it is imperative that the listener understand that the singers' (plural) perspectives change every time the stanzas do. The singer in the first stanza is Jesus; the singer in the second stanza is Judas; and in the final stanza, it's you and me.
