Neil Young not only played with Dave Matthews at the “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon earlier tonight, but he also performed a touching rendition of Stills-Young Band classic “Long May You Run” for Conan O’Brien’s final episode as the host of the Tonight Show on NBC. Those weren’t the only epic musical moments of the evening, however, as we had previously believed…
Conan himself jammed with Will Ferrell, Beck, Ben Harper, and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons for a version of “Free Bird.” Seriously! Lynyrd Skynyrd’s epic classic rock jam “Free Bird” (complete with cowbell). Videos of both performances are embedded below.
Between this and O’Brien’s classy farewell speech, Coco’s final week has definitely made a few contributions to the canon of legendary TV moments at this point, I say.
Watch Will Ferrell, Beck, Ben Harper, Billy Gibbons, and Conan play “Free Bird” below:
