Oh my goodness, it’s true – The Roots have sold out

Getting back to The Roots, who were involved in a scary bus crash a few months ago, the rumors are indeed confirmed.

Let me see if I can put this simply.

The Roots will be the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Tragic.

Our boys, including the irreverent ?uestlove will be backing up Jimmy Fallon when he takes over for Conan in March.  Conan’s moving up to take over for Jay Leno.

Watch his video blog announcement below, just so you can see it for yourself.

Personally I think it’s a huge loss to have the Roots give up touring to stay behind the scenes like this.  Hopefully they’ll have a high profile on the show, and somehow I can imagine ?uestlove laughing along with Jimmy the way Kevin Eubanks laughed along with Leno.  But it’s a sad day for hip hop.

  2. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks!
