Drummer Hannah Ford to join Prince on 'Jimmy Kimmel' Tuesday

Posted by: Jon Bream under Music, Late-night TV, Minnesota musicians Updated: October 22, 2012 - 5:46 PM

For “The View,” Prince donned an Afro wig.

For “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, Prince will have a new drummer, Hannah Ford. Well, she’s actually being billed as a guest drummer. They’re scheduled to play the new tune “Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Affair.”

Um, don’t read anything into it. Ford, a veteran singer/jazz drummer from Chicago, is married to Joshua Welton and has worked with Wynton Marsalis and Louie Bellson, among others.

We’ll have to tune in to see if Ford is truly an additional drummer and if longtime New Power Generation drummer John Blackwell is still involved, as well.

“Kimmel” airs about 11:30 p.m. on KSTP Ch. 5.
