Old man, take a look at Jimmy Fallon, he’s a lot like you.

John Belushi may have done it with Joe Cocker on Saturday Night Live, but it takes a lot of guts to do an impression of a musician onstage with that musician. Fortunately, Fallon, 40, is up to the challenge.

The Tonight Show host performed alongside Neil Young on Tuesday night’s show as Neil Young.

Fallon trots out his Neil Young impression pretty frequently, but it’s never had a more appropriate spot than onstage next to the legendary singer as he’s performing “Old Man.” Fallon starts off the clip playing solo, until he is eventually joined by Young, 69, who’s dressed identically and even picking a similar-looking guitar.

Diehard Young fans will likely laugh as the pair immediately begin de-tuning their guitars after the song, a ritual often heard during Young’s solo performances over the years.

Okay, Jimmy: How about doing “Father and Son” with Cat Stevens?
