The Roots Turn Jimmy Fallon’s Studio Into The Max For A Few Minutes

In case you missed it: Last night’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon had an extended segment in which Mark-Paul Gosselar reincarnated himself as the poufy-haired, brick-phone-carrying wisealeck Zack Morris, the character at the center of NBC’s Saturday-morning sitcom Saved By The Bell. What ties this into a music blog: The Roots not only killed the SBTB theme, they backed up Morris–er, Gosselar–as he busted into his old band the Zack Attack’s chestnut “Friends Forever.” It’s been quite a ’90stastic couple of days for ?uestlove and the gang–first they’re bringing Donnie Wahlberg and Jordan Knight onstage in Philadelphia, and now they’re playing backup band for Zack Morris. What’s next–swapping out their Highline Ballroom residency for one at the Peach Pit After Dark? [Hulu via Brokedown Palace]
