Questlove to Produce New Show on VH1
Philly Roots drummer Questlove is on a roll: He’s getting all sorts of spotlight treatment on Jimmy Fallon, he just played a corpse on Law and Order: SVU, and now HitFix reports that he’ll be producing a new show on VH1 hosted by Diplo, and starring a who’s who of the music industry:
The Roots leader is executive producing a music series for VH1 that will feature three artists performing simultaneously on one stage. SoundClash debuts July 23 with Lil Wayne, Fall Out Boy and buzzed British group London Grammar.
The concept behind the series is to showcase A-List musicians and rising acts performing a range of songs, from current hits to covers to collaborative numbers, instantaneously.
Ed Sheeran, singer-songwriter Sia and alternative rock band Grouplove will appear on the second episode, to air July 30.
