I’ve been a big fan of Jimmy Fallon since his SNL days, and him getting his own show this year, after he replaced Conan O’Brien as the host of the Late Night Show, did only to enforced my admiration. Last night, though, Jimmy delivered a moment of sheer and utter brilliance, when he strapped on a wig, a hat and a flannel and performed what can only be called the best Neil Young impression ever….
The band handled themselves marvelously during their live performance for Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night Show where they played their new single “Crying Lightning”. Not a lot of stage persona, but the sound was simply impecable! Seems like the band (and hair) is getting better and better as each album goes by. Check out the performance bellow or, for better quality, here. “Humbug” is out August 24th.
Out furiously promoting his latest Greatest Hits compilation, the revered Morrissey dropped off on the Late Night Show with Craig Ferguson, both yesterday and the day before that. That’s twice in a row. Talk about a groundhog day. There, he played “All You Need Is Me” and “Irish Blood, English Heart.” ~All You Need Is Me – 28/04/08 ~ Irish Blood, English Heart – 29/04/08
