Hard Times

The other day on my facebook, me, a British dude, a Filipino USC grad student, a Brooklyn born Chinese, a mixed girl living in Thailand, and this Brotha from Memphis were arguing about rock vs rap.

We talked about The Roots, how they went from legit to … Jimmy Fallon’s house band.

But you know, it’s easy to hate on Fallon and it’s easy to clown the Roots for being their house band, but these guys can play music. I still remember seeing them live in 03, on the same bill with Foo Fighters and the Interpol, it was a damn good show.

Anyway, here is John Legend with Jimmy Fallon’s houseband, The Roots.

Hard Times.

Oh my.
