He played the national anthem like a boss. What we want to see is the picture of him back stage, after he plays the anthem, when he runs into George Harrison. Now that’s a story!

The images in this gallery capture those stories. Here are all the famous people you know, but not necessarily in the way you know them. This is the back stage view of yesterday, presented today. (Yes, that is Will Ferrell in a tiara at prom.)
