    My mom tells the story of the night she did NOT go to see the Beatles at Shea Stadium. It was 1966. I was not yet a twinkle in her eye.

    Her Beatles miss is eerily reminiscent of my Stevie Ray Vaughan rule which refers to the night I opted out of seeing Stevie Ray play only to have him die in a helicopter crash three months later. As we’ve discussed, if you have the chance to see an artist perform, err on the side of caution and go see the f**k**ing concert.

    As it turns out, Mom missed a concert that changed the course of music history. Thanks to Ron Howard, mom finally got to see that show up close and personal.
