Incidentally, I read just a year or so ago that there was an episode similar
to that of the Dorsey Brothers some years back between the Everly Brothers.
I don't know whether it was Don or Phil that did the walking but the other
was left onstage to finish a concert perfomance solo
(or did I mention that already; is this, as Yogi Berra once said, Deja Vu
all over again?).
