Late Night Classic Rock Wars

Last Friday Jimmy Fallon did a spot-on impersonation of Jim Morrison on his Late Night show:
Jimmy’s impersonation of Jim is incredible, the band impersonators are great, and I love the recreation of the background from the Door’s Ed Sullivan appearance.
There’s just one problem for me: I can’t help but compare it to Conan O’Brien’s satire of the Song Remains the Same on Late Night in the 90’s. Conan obviously doesn’t impersonate Robert Plant well, but his whole shtick had me laughing in a way that Fallon doesn’t:
(One question has always haunted me about this clip – is that George Plimpton that Conan slays in the fantasy sequence?!)
