The Roots climbed up from being in an independent hip hop band, to the most well-known music group on television every night.
They first came together in 1987, in Philadelphia.
There have been a stable core of band members, as well as those who’ve come and gone over the years.
But as the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon they have had the opportunity to meet numerous musical and non-musical celebrities.
Celebrities meeting celebrities equals double starstruck.
