Meg White is temporarily out of commission, so Jack White has found a new performance partner: Bob Dylan. White shocked the crowd at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium last night when he joined Dylan for the first ever live performance of the Blood on the Tracks gem "Meet Me In The Morning."

Elvis Costello, who is set to join the Dylan tour this Saturday night, also surprised the crowd with a brief solo acoustic set after opening act Amos Lee.

The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
