The Replacements Perform “Alex Chilton”

They said it would happen, and it did. Nearly 30 years after getting banned from “Saturday Night Live”, the Replacements were the musical guests on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“. Though Fallon began the episode by joking that they’d be covering Smash Mouth’s “All Star”, they did their Pleased to Meet Me classic “Alex Chilton.” They weren’t joined by Keith Richards, who sat down with Fallon to talk about his new children’s book Gus & Me. In addition to talking about his grandfather and early memories of learning to play guitar, he recounted the time he got punched in the face by Chuck Berry.
