Boy George & Jack Black Join Forces for The Doors 'Hello I Love You' on 'Conan'
Jack Black and Boy George both happen to be big fans of The Doors. And as it turns out, both of the musicians were on hand last night (July 13) on Conan. What better way to marry these two coincidences than a live performance? That's what we got when the two joined forces with Doors guitarist Robby Krieger for a take on the classic 1968 hit "Hello I Love You."
The segue between Boy George's interview with Conan O'Brien and the performance was a little, well, clunky at best. The two gabbed about George's influences (which never moved past the '70s), and when the Culture Club singer brought up The Doors, O'Brien admitted he didn't hear that sound in his voice. Black interjected about Jim Morrison having the best yell and the rest is now history.
The duet between Black and George shockingly worked well, with Black running around the studio like the madman he is and George keeping it cool. But mixed with Krieger's signature guitar work, "Hello I Love You" got a renewed life.

Boy George and Jack Black weren't the only ones to have a musical moment on Conan last night, Death Cab for Cutie was also on hand at the late night talk show to perform. Following a tour date at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, Ben Gibbard and co. continued to promote their new album Kintsugi with a city appropriate performance of "The Ghosts of Beverly Drive."
