VIDEO: Questlove is 'Black Simon & Garfunkel' and covers Katy Perry

In addition to being the band leader of The Legendary Roots Crew, Questlove is also a published author, a chef, a DJ, a blogger, and an NYU professor (and, really, much, much more). On Wednesday, he again showcased his versatility on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when he and The Roots' guitarist Kirk Douglas teamed up to form "Black Simon & Garfunkel."

On Wednesday, he again showcased his versatility on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon when he and The Roots' guitarist Kirk Douglas teamed up to form "Black Simon & Garfunkel."
