The curious end to Conan O’Brien’s stint as the host of the Tonight Show played out on Friday (Jan. 22) night. It’s unlikely O’Brien will remain off-air for very long, and the good will that has flown toward him (and the sizable cash payout) will make the blow a soft one.
According to O’Brien’s intro, Neil Young called him up and asked if he could appear on the final show when the news was announced. The talk show host duly obliged, and Young delivered this acoustic version of “Long May You Run,” which he could probably perform in his sleep at this point in his career, but still works well as a touching send-off.
