?uestlove, the drummer and bandleader of The Roots, wrote the following tweet about Bruce Springsteen’s recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
man. we rehearsed those two songs for 90 mins. and that was like an olympic workout. i can only imagine and appreciate max weinberg drumming for 4 hours a night for the last 40+ years. i remember that link i put up about avoiding your heros at all cost (well….you know who was on the show)—and true to form that’s exactly what i did. but today DEADED all that. bruce truly lived up to all of the expectations i had for any god like figure in this world. he was engaging, hilarious, full of great stories, educational, informative….and generally it really seemed like he enjoyed playing with us. he made it pleasant and fun. and teaching us a thing or two about having fun with dynamics and volume. i know i say it EVERYTIME someone comes on @latenightjimmy, but i truly had the time of my life today.
