RNR News and Notes

With his late night TV show set shut down - Jimmy Fallon has been producing The Tonight Show - from his home.  

 

To keep the show's continuity - he's had guests, musical performances, and has even been jamming with his house band - The Roots.  

 

Jimmy pulled the trifecta off last week - having Sting on as the musical guest and jamming with The Roots.  What's more impressive - is they played the perfect social distancing song- "Don't Stand So Close To Me" ... and since that's not impressive enough- they played it using instruments found at home while in quarantine (except for Sting who played lead guitar) ...
