Conan O' Brien Performs "Blue Moon Of Kentucky"

Here are a couple of YouTube clips from the Conan O'Brien show - the first one is him singing and playing guitar, performing "Blue Moon Of Kentucky". The second shows him roaming the halls of his studio with a guitar and strap-on amp, riffing away on "Smoke On The Water", "Purple Haze", "Creep" and "Sabotage" (the latter two while other workers are playing Rock Band). Shows why he's the funniest late night TV host, and not a bad musician at the same time (who knew?)

That's "Sunshine of Your Love" (by Cream) down there in the second one.

(Zappa did a version of that morphed from that into Purple Haze once.)

Oh yeah... the Edith Bunker version of Sabotage is the funniest thing I've ever seen him do. That rocked.

I didn't mention him doing "Sunshine of your Love", but he does do a quick riff of "Purple Haze" after that, just after he starts roaming the hallways.
