Chiwetel Ejiofor, Natasha Lyonne, Emily Mortimer, and Lisa Lampanelli shared their favorite music moments with EW — including one that involved Mortimer acting like she knew Mick Jagger (she didn’t) and another about Lampanelli trying to woo Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson during a phone interview (she didn’t).

For Ejiofor, his happened when he was about 8 or 9. His parents went to a Paul Simon concert. Then, decades later, it was his turn: “I realized as I was watching him, that day when my parents had gone to see him play, my father was exactly the same age as me,” the Martian star told EW. “And this guy had somehow spanned both of our lives in this way.”
