    I must be pretty vintage myself - I remember watching that live. Couldn’t tell you when it was but it obviously wasn’t recent. I’ve been watching that show on and off since the first season...

    I would have guessed '75 (when I was 3) and I definitely wasn't watching it then.

    Still knew who everyone was, and knowing what I know now about what was going on behind the scenes I noticed some jaw clinching and other tells.

    Dan Akroyd made that part of his character in a sketch where he's a fast talking talkshow host who interviews Paul Simon not knowing who he is.

    Thinks he's a man of the same name who heads an organization of independent truckers (a joke when you think about it), then mistakes him for Neil Simon (hears "writer" when he says songwriter), then when Paul says SONGWRITER he thinks he's John Lenon, or one of the other Beattles. Then after being corrected he's a solo artist starts naming Jackson Brown songs.

    Paul Simon says if you don't know who I am and booked me thinking I'm someone else then I don't see why I should stay, leaves the stage.

    Whole time Akroyd's talking really fast and moving his jaw around like he's geeked.

    I caught the start of this last night. Can’t forget Paul Simon in the turkey costume.
