Watch the Who + Jimmy Fallon Play This Classic Song on Toy Instruments
The Who's Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend picked up a toy tambourine and colorful plastic ukulele, respectively, for a take on their classic "Won't Get Fooled Again" Wednesday (May 15) on The Tonight Show. Backed by house band the Roots, host Jimmy Fallon led the iconic rock duo through the lighthearted version of the Who's Next closer.
Watch the video down toward the bottom of this post.
True to form, Townshend even smashed his instrument at the end, the musician affably recreating the guitar-sacrificing routine he pioneered onstage with the Who throughout the '60s. Earlier this year, Daltrey recalled the resultant cacophony of the guitarist's frequent instrument destruction "would leave us with our ears bleeding."
The Who are on tour in North America throughout the spring and fall, and a new album from the legendary act is also reportedly in the works. See all of the band's upcoming tour dates down after the funny Fallon video clip.
