Farrah Fawcett loves Van Morrison's music.

So much so that the legendary musician filmed his recent shows at L.A.'s Orpheum Theater so he could give copies to Fawcett to watch while she's at home in bed in Malibu.

Morrison's 1987 romantic ballad, "Queen of the Slipstream," is featured in Farrah's Story, Fawcett's documentary about her cancer battle premiering tomorrow night on NBC.

Ryan O'Neal, along with his grandchildren, visited with Morrison backstage after his concert this past Saturday. I'm told the actor and Fawcett have been fans of Morrison since the 1970s.

"Van is also a huge fan of Ryan and Farrah's work," says a rep for Morrison, whose new DVD, Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl, is out May 19.

Among his favorites? "Farrah in The Apostle," the rep said, "and Ryan in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon and, of course, Love Story."
