Ever wonder what Neil Young thinks of Jimmy Fallon's impersonation of him? Wonder no more. He's a big fan. Seriously, according to his recently released memoir it is so good he jokes that he does't have to do TV gigs anymore. In Waging Heavy Peace, Young writes of Fallon:
"Fallon sounded like a twenty-year-old me. Maybe not as good. Maybe better. How about that Jimmy Fallon? He is a classic. He does me so well, I don't have to bother anymore.
