TODAY host Matt Lauer isn’t just your favorite morning TV host, nor is he just a pretty face (amiright ladies?), he also happens to be a huge classic rock buff. This week, Matt is guest DJing on Classic Vinyl — SiriusXM’s channel for the top classic rock tracks from the ’60s and ’70s — to play all his favorites, and TODAY Radio‘s Jessica Ettinger spoke with him about some of his top picks.

“I’ve never actually hosted a channel, and so to go back to Classic Vinyl, which by the way is like going back to my college and high school experience, is gonna be a lot of fun,” Matt said.

“Bell Bottom Blues is not only my favorite Clapton song, it’s one of my top three favorite songs of all time. I love The Beatles. I’ve had a great time with my kids kind of introducing them to the music of The Beatles. And the Stones I’ll probably talk a little bit about one of the great things about this job is having had the opportunity to interview the Stones on a number of occasions. All together and individually, I just have a real weak spot for the Stones.”

The Rolling Stones — “Tumbling Dice”

The Beatles — “Get Back”

Eric Clapton — “Bell Bottom Blues”
