[Watch] Wanda Jackson & Jack White - "Funnel of Love" Live on Conan

For the third time in as many weeks we get to see Jack White firing his guitar off on all rounds as last night him and Wanda Jackson made another TV appearance. This time it was on Jack's friend and sharer of the stage on at least two occasions, Conan O'Brien who was to be the host for the White/Jackson performance. The pair along with the Third Man Band took to the set and performed "Funnel Of Love" which Wanda first performed back in 1961. It doesn't appear on Wanda's new release, The Party Ain’t Over which dropped in stores yesterday. As well as their performance Jack and Wanda sat down to have a talk about the whole experience and what not with Conan, of which you can watch after the jump.

If you missed either of the other recent performances/appearences by these guys, you can see Jack and co doing their thing on Letterman, blasting out "Shakin' All Over" for your viewing pleasure. As well as that entertaining vid Wanda, Jack and the band spent a day recording and performing a Bob Dylan Cover in the form "Thunder on the Mountain". Recorded at the very same pressing factory at which Wanda's new LP was it makes for an energetic performance. Enjoy the Conan performance at the top courtesy of our friends over at The Audio Perv.
