Conan O'Brien turned up at Jack White's Third Man Records production company in Nashville yesterday to lay down a sizzling set before a live audience amid plans to release the show on vinyl later this year. White dubbed Conan a "rockabilly legend in the making" before he tore through Radiohead's Creep, Presley's Blue Moon, Eddie Cochran's Twenty Flight Rock, and Willie Nelson's On the Road Again. "This is probably the most fun I've had in show business," O'Brien told a crowd of 300.

O'Brien has been traveling around the country with his band on The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour while awaiting the start of his next talk-show gig at TBS after being unceremoniously dumped from the Tonight Show, notes AP. "This means everything to me. This was so cool," O'Brien said as he left the stage.
