Neil Young & Jimmy Fallon Are “Two Neil Youngs on a Tree Stump” on “The Tonight Show”


Andrew Lipovsky/NBCNeil Young, whose new album Earth, comes out on Friday, joined Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a taped segment on Tuesday called, “Two Neil Youngs on a Tree Stump.”

As the title implies, the two — Fallon, impersonating the 70-year-old rocker, and Neil, as himself — are seen playing a song while sitting back to back on a spinning tree stump.

James Taylor appeared in a similar sketch with Fallon a year ago called “Two James Taylors on a Seesaw.”

This is the second time the real Neil Young has shown up on The Tonight Show to duet with Jimmy’s fake Neil Young. The two performed Young’s hit “Old Man” back in February of 2015.

Earth, recorded with Young’s latest band, The Promise of the Real, is made up of live tracks recorded in 2015. Neil later mixed in elements he recorded in the studio, along with recordings of a variety of wildlife sounds.
