It's well-known that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is an avid Bruce Springsteen fan. In 2010 he tried to get his home state's most famous rocker to play at his inaugural ball, but wound up getting a tribute band instead. Most recently, he asked Springsteen to perform at a new casino in Atlantic City.
Before he started whipping his hair with Bruce Springsteen, late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon made his name as a member of NBC's 'Saturday Night Live,' where he often had difficulty keeping a straight face. In a new interview, Fallon recalls why he broke up in the middle of the famous "More Cowbell" sketch, which aired in 2000.
Jimmy Fallon continues to work with some of the top music talent in late night, and it's paying off as the comedian-turned-talk show host has just issued a new album called 'Blow Your Pants Off.'
Classic rockers like Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and more are planning to participate in the always hilarious Jimmy Fallon's first comedy album in a decade. The comedian/late night talk show host/former 'SNL' star will release 'Blow Your Pants Off,' his first comedy disc since 2002's 'The Bathroom Wall,' on June 12. Clearly, Fallon has friends in high places.
"Bruce Springsteen Week" on NBC's 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' concluded on Friday (March 2) with Springsteen performing three songs, two from his upcoming album, 'Wrecking Ball,' and a third from deep in the Springsteen archives that turned Studio 6B at 30 Rock into a joyous house party.
It looks like Jimmy Fallon is the latest person to be showing symptoms of "Linsanity." Fallon mined Pearl Jam's back pages during Thursday night's 'Late Show' to bust out a song called 'Jeremy (Lin),' a tribute to the current New York Knick's basketball sensation Jeremy Lin set to the classic PJ tune from their 1991 debut album, 'Ten.'
