The Roots Are Fine After Tour Bus Crash In Paris

Posted By on November 20, 2008

    The Roots are ok after the group's tour bus crashed while traveling throughout Paris, France last night. The legendary group's drummer, ?uestlove, told OkayPlayer "In reality the crash was all of about 7 seconds," continuing, "But to do a 360 on the highway and end up ramped up (the van that crashed into ours was UNDER our double decker bus) in the air….is….well…a frigging miracle."

    In related news, as we previously reported [more here] The Roots recently announced that they were going to retire in March of next year. In the mean time the group will serve as the house band for the new Jimmy Fallon show. Jimmy Fallon is taking over Conan O'Brien's spot when O'Brien takes over Jay Leno's spot.
