Jimmy Fallon has become pretty well known for his impersonations, and one of his best is Neil Young!
And he's got it all nailed down with the dusty hat and jacket, the guitar and the harmonica, and beautiful playing and singing!

Eddie Van Halen endorsed musical education by donating 75 electric guitars to El Lay schools from his personal collection last week.
The rock star made the donation to Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports music education in public schools, and said:
"Music is the universal language. It has the ability to transcend and convey every human emotion that exists without saying a word. Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble and gave me something that was mine that no one could take away from me. Music education and families are dealing with the economic times, and I wanted to help them. If I can help a kid discover a liking, or even a passion for music in their life, then that's a wonderful thing. Music has provided a good life for me and hopefully it can help make life better for others with this donation."
So true! Music has done nothing but good in this world and we're happy famous musicians are willing to support others trying to learn how to make it!

Hopefully this will help convince R-Patz to continue down the music path!
According to Us Weekly, Kristen Stewart gave BF Robert Pattinson a VERY generous gift for Xmas - two fancy, rare guitars!
She reportedly picked up a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and a 1947 K&F Lap Steel at Norman's Rare Guitars in El Lay.
We're hearing that the guitars were valued at over $12,000! Wow!
Enjoy UR gifts, Robert! And make us some music!!!!!!

And we thought Stephen Colbert's self-portrait sold for a lot of money…
At a Bonhams New York auction yesterday, Eric Clapton's 75 guitars and 55 amps sold for a total of $2.15 million! WOW!
Best part about it? The proceeds are going to benefit "a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies."
As a recovered addict himself, Clapton formed nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in '98 in an effort to give back.
Good for you, Eric! This is a wonderful gesture! You've gained some serious points in our book for this one.
We still can't get over that number! $2.15 million! Fantastic!
How much would U pay for an Eric Clapton guitar?
