Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young had a heartwarming reunion last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, OR DID THEY?!? I’m not going to lie, Neil Young was writing songs before I was born, so I won’t act like I know a lot about him. I do know that he should likely look his age, however, and that is totally Jimmy Fallon emulating him. While this probably wasn't meant to be a mystery, some people are overlooking this when they cover it on the web today. This also isn’t Fallon’s first time impersonating Neil Young. Watch him performing "Whip My Hair" in the video below, with a certain special guest.
To be honest, it's no surprise people are getting confused when listening to Fallon’s voice in the video. He’s incredibly good at sounding like Neil Young…
The real Neil Young has no qualms with Fallon’s impersonations. In fact, he spoke about Fallon parodying him in his book Waging Heavy Peace …
"Fallon sounded like a twenty-year-old me. Maybe not as good. Maybe better. How about that Jimmy Fallon? He is a classic. He does me so well, I don't have to bother anymore. He looks great, and I am an old guy who doesn't want to be on TV, so Jimmy has done all of my television performances for the last year or so. Thank you, Jimmy!"
Crosby, Stills, and Nash are in the midst of a tour and stopped by to visit Fallon before a three-day concert stint in NYC. The trio, who are all right around their 70s, will then continue touring the rest of America before the year's end. I can’t imagine such a demanding tour schedule that late in life, so big ups to those guys for having the strength to do so!
On the other side of the world, the real Neil Young is kicking off a tour of his own. He begins an 18-day stretch through Europe this week, and will perform in the nation of Turkey for the first time ever. Meanwhile, a very select group of old Turkish men will be losing their minds because their fan mail from the 1970s was finally answered! On a more serious note, it’s super cool that a whole nation will get to experience “Heart Of Gold” live for the first time.
