What a treat this was.
Jimmy Fallon has long been known for his spot-on impressions of Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Jim Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, but tonight his most famous musical imitation — Neil Young — got put to the test in a truly memorable way.
Fallon appeared alone on-stage, dressed in his Young costume, and began performing Shakey’s 1972 classic cut “Old Man.” He got one verse and chorus in before the actual Neil Young emerged from the shadows to take over for the second verse.
After hearing them side by side, you really appreciate just how good Fallon’s impression is — although his more nasaly, higher-pitched delivery becomes quite obvious.
