In a new animated series for OkayPlayer, Questlove tell us a story like no other: ongoing attempts to get Patti LaBelle to cook him some of her legendary soul food.
With a photo of Williams from Mork & Mindy, The Roots drummer started his Instagram post by writing, “Man. The smallest gesture can mean the world to you. Robin Williams made such an impact on me and didn’t even know it.”
The drummer told SPIN magazine, “I’ve spent every free second of my life listening to music, watching Soul Train, creating music, and reading books about music. That’s what I did with my life.”
“We had 13 or 14 songs, but then we said, ‘Ooh! Wait a minute! Let’s replace four of these songs with four better songs!” Questlove said.
The Roots’ Questlove – drummer, DJ, “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” sidekick and man about town – will soon be Prof Questo.
