A fantastic time sitting in with “the greatest band in late night” -
THE ROOTS on Jimmy Fallon (2013-09-11)
Simon and Jimmy Fallon really connected at the Who gig at Nassau Coliseum in February of 2013. Later in March of 2013, Simon had visited a taping of the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show and was graciously invited by The Roots AND Jimmy Fallon to come back and sit in with the band. After scheduling conflicts made the original July impossible, Simon was rescheduled for Sept 11th. He had a fabulous time with the band – great fun!
Below are some highlights:
Jimmy chats with Simon about seeing Simon “shred” with The Who back in February.

Simon arrived in NYC on Sept 10th, appeared on the show Sept 11th and was back home in the UK on Sept 12th! Hectic, but well worth it!
