Bonnaroo 2012 Superjam with Questlove, D’Angelo, Pino Palladino and More

During the 2012 Bonnaroo festival, the Superjam was set up by The Roots drummer Questlove.

Questlove said Pino is “one of the greatest bass players I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He is the second coming of James Jamerson…”

Pino added that with bass and drums, “the lock is the most important thing,” and that when he first played with Questlove, it happened instantly.

Here are some great behind-the-scenes moments and performances from the festival:
