In stranger than fiction news, The Roots has been slated to become the house band when Jimmy Fallon hits the air on March 2nd.  First, stated in an online video which was quickly taken off the air, ?uestlove remarked on his old age and their band’s desire to find a steady gig.  The announcement was further confirmed by Jimmy Fallon on his blog.  The band – most in their late 30s – are looking forward to living like “normal men,” as ?uestlove says.  Although not a complete announcement of retirement, The Roots, known for their extensive touring, will definitely be putting their road show on hiatus.
