Watch Fred Armisen and 'Late Night' Predecessor Questlove's Drum-Off
    • TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2014

    Yesterday Seth Meyers revealed that fellow SNL star Fred Armisen would take over Questlove's duties as the bandleader and music curator of Late Night alongside guitarist Seth Jabour (Les Savy Fav), bassist Syd Butler (Les Savy Fav), keyboardist Eli Janney (Girls Against Boys) and drummer Kim Thompson (Beyonce's touring band). We already speculated that Armisen would usher in an age of underground talent, and with Syd Butler—founder of Frenchkiss Records—on board, we can only expect to see a few of his cohorts hitting the stage.

    We also came across this clip from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from early 2013 where Fred Armisen and his predecessor Questlove faced off in an epic drum battle. A little foreshadowing? Maybe a try-out?
