Watch Adam Sandler Play The Guitar Solo On Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven
Acting and comedy legend Adam Sandler has been using his time in coronavirus lockdown to fine-tune his guitar skills, telling U.S. talk show host Conan O’Brien on the #ConanAtHome show that he’s been shredding at his house for the last few days.
“Are you playing a lot of guitar these days?” the host asked on his March 31 episode. “I have been playing!” responds Adam. “Like, the last three or four days I’m like, ‘What do I do? Oh yeah, I play guitar.’ ”

As a jam session between the two then ensues, Adam reveals that he’s been practicing Jimmy Page’s lead in Led Zeppelin’s iconic Stairway To Heaven in his room – and puts his skills to the test by performing the solo for Conan.
The guitar chat begins at around 15:40 in the clip – but the full thing is worth a watch as Adam and Conan chat about social distancing, and Adam unleashes an incredibly impressive opera note. (Which might give you a headache, but hopefully not.)
Just two days after his appearance on Conan, Adam then busted out his guitar on the home edition of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, performing an original coronavirus-themed song for viewers.
We can’t confirm this for definite, but if you’re in a band and looking to get an Adam Sandler guitar cameo on your record, now might be a good time to hit him up?
Inspiration can come in a variety of forms, and for many rock bands, it comes from the pages of a good book…
