Thanks be to Callum and Sir Mike of Mitchell for the hookup.
It’s Conan’s last night in his 12:30 timeslot – White Stripes are coming together tonight to celebrate his self-deprecating brilliance. So watch. Too bad Leno has officially become an ass by refusing to step outside of the limelight and let Conan speak to the thirsty masses, masses Leno couldn’t quench even if he donated his chin dimples. 10PM time slot, yeah we’ll see. Maybe it’s cause no one wants to buy his 150 vintage cars.
I hope it’s just a see ya and not a bye Mr. Conan. Everyone would miss you too much. SO don’t mmkay?
Conan is my boy. I’ve seen a lot of crappy indie bands on that show and it makes sense sometimes – you get one song, one shot, and now I sound like Eminem.
Jim James and his lovely band My Morning Jacket may just be the very best rock band in America. They have been for the past few years. This song (“One Big Holiday” from LP It Still Moves) is from a while back, about three albums ago. Just make sure you watch it to the end and hear Conan’s reaction. Just think of them as hairy rock aliens, showing us Earthlings that rock and roll is still alive and changed for the better.
Next post I will show you my favourite performance on Letterman. And golly it`s My Morning Jacket again.
