If you have ever seen Will Ferrell and Chad Smith, the drummer for the Chili Peppers, they look a lot alike...a lot.  Jimmy Fallon was the first person to ever get them in the same room together and an epic drum battle broke out.  It has a conclusion I didn't see coming.  Enjoy.




Back in 1987 The Replacements were close to releasing their 5th album "Pleased To Meet Me", so they were invited to play on SNL. Seemed like a good idea...right? Well, that's not how it turned out. If anyone knows anything about The Mat, they know they back then they were what one would call "Drinkers". So why would that night be like any other? It wouldn't. It started when they were picked up in a limo with a fully stocked bar...then a fully stocked dressing room....then ordering more liquor once they ran out. Even the shows host that night Harry Dean Stanton proceded to toss back a few with them...maybe more than a few actually. 

So by the time they took the stage to do their first song "Bastards Of Young", it's safe to say they were hammered. How did they sound? Well, that's subjective. I LOVED it!!! But I'm a Mats fan. Lorne Michaels did feel the same way. After they trashed the hotel room, part of the set, forgot some lyrics, swore on stage/on live TV, he had them banned from NBC. He even threatened to ban ALL Warner Bros. bands. Don't mess with Lorne!!! 

So after almost 30 years The Mats returned to NBC last night to play on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Sure I could have DVRed it and watched it today...but that's just not how I do things. I stayed up with some tasty beverages and watched live...and yes, yes it was great. Below I have videos from last night AND the SNL performance from years ago. Feel free to compare and contrast....but most important just enjoy it....They Did!!!
