For nearly five years, Jimmy Fallon has been impersonating Neil Young with comedic cover songs on late-night television. But on Tuesday, Fallon was joined by the actual Neil Young.
Neil has appeared on The Tonight Show before, but Fallon was too intimidated to ask the legend to do a duet with him. Previously, Fallon sang “Fancy” and “Whip My Hair” as the folk/rock icon, but this is the first time he’s actually performed a song written by Young.
Fallon NAILS a younger Neil Young with his singing, while Young is sporting a deeper, raspier voice than he did as a young man. It’s funny, Jimmy Fallon almost sounds more like Neil Young than Neil Young!
