Barry Gibb stopped by Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" this week to discuss the talk show host's "Saturday Night Live" impersonation of the Bee Gees crooner and to sing a few impromptu covers.

Gibb, who crashed Fallon's "SNL" hosting gig last month, said Monday that he "loves" the infamous "Barry Gibb Talk Show" sketch where Fallon dresses as the English musician and freaks out on everyone.

Fallon took the opportunity, though, to set the record straight.

"The whole thing where Barry gets mad, I made that up," he told Gibb. "You're actually a nice guy. I've never heard a bad story about you. I just made it up because I always wanted to do a character that just snaps on people . . . So I apologize if anyone thinks you're a mean guy."

The two then teamed up for a harmonization of some songs by The Everly Brothers, including "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," and "All I Have to Do Is Dream."

It's not clear whether The Everly Brothers tribute was in honor of Phil Everly, who died earlier this month of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Gibb also talked about meeting his idol Paul McCartney, who swung by "SNL" in December to make an appearance during Fallon's opening monologue.

"We've met twice. That was the second time. The first time was 1967 . . . in London," Gibb said of the former Beatle. "I think it was really bad, it was a bad show. But he was great . . . He's my hero, you know, he's the kind of songwriter and singer that we follow all our lives."

Fallon will replace Jay Leno as host of "The Tonight Show" on Feb. 17. "Saturday Night Live" cast member Seth Myers will take over Fallon's "Late Night."
