This is taking from my 2nd explanation in this song so if you've read that there's no point in reading this. The story behind the song is about Brian's passing on to the next life (or heaven or anything else you believe in) because while Brian was "Playing a show down the road" his friend had gotten into a fatal car accident killing him almost immediately, Brian couldn't make it to the funeral because of another show he had planned which is where the line "I'm sorry I couldn't go" comes from. Added on- The reason He had gotten into the accident was because he was having a fight with his girlfriend over the phone and couldn't pay attention to the road.
