The Red Bull Music Academy video series offers music fans a thorough and intimate look at artists as they discuss life and musical ideologies, thought processes, and experiences. I enjoy these one-on-one discussions that promote critically-acclaimed artists to delve deeper into their careers and the songs that have contributed to their success. Yesterday, the producer, arranger, songwriter, music critic, drummer, and front-man of The Roots ?uestlove sat down with Chairman Mao and described his musical upbringing, progression of drumming technique, his experience teaching a NYU lecture on “classic albums,” and much more. Also briefly mentioned during the video is his upcoming novel Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove out in hardcover June 18th. Watch at least a portion of this one hour, thirty minute interview and pre-order his upcoming novel on Amazon.
