Questlove has stories for days.
The premise of the show is simple but ingenious: J-Zone will invite some of the best drummers in the world to come over and tell their stories. Hopefully, in the process, they will reveal some secrets about their craft. Tomorrow’s episode will feature one of the greatest drummers of all time: Questlove of The Roots.
During the first episode, Quest talks about a number of topics: the early The Roots days; their “battle of the bands thing” with The Fugees; his childhood growing up backstage in Philadelphia; and much more.
This is only the first episode. Upcoming guests include Bernard Purdie, Mike Clark, and more.
The first episode of Give the Drummer Some will air on February 5th 6:00 pm EST. You can stream it here.
