Fallon Earns Respect With Neil Young Impersonation
Jimmy Fallon was always one of my favorites on Saturday Night Live, especially hosting Weekend Update with Tina Fey. Since he took over the Late Show from Conan O’Brian I haven’t watched much until recently when Bruce Springsteen was his only guest of the night. The highlight of the night was Jimmy’s impersonation of Neil Young covering Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair.” With a hat and long hair covering much of his face and playing guitar and harmonica hunched over on a stool it sure looked like Neil and the singing voice was very convincing too. The skit even became funnier when he was joined by “The Boss” in vintage “Darkness On The Edge of Town” era mustache and cap playing guitar and singing backup.
It was one of the funniest bits I’ve seen on TV in a long time and am looking forward to more of Jimmy Fallon’s impersonations, if I can stay up that late.
