?uestlove Talks 'Mo' Meta Blues' On The Daily Show
?uestlove dropped by The Daily Show to chat with Jon Oliver about Mo’ Meta Blues – his musical memoir driven by a cool set of footnotes, an undying devotion to pop culture and a life in sound. Jon Oliver begins by complimenting ?uesto on his bow tie – shout outs to Brooklyn – and the fact that his book does not suck. Oliver is especially impressed by the footnotes of the book written by The Roots‘ manager Rich Nichols; the commentary provided by Nichols consistently opposes ?uestlove’s recollection of events with a list of inaccuracies. As ?uestlove points out during the interview with Oliver, the success of the book is in these hilarious disagreements. ?uesto goes on to talk about the soundtrack to his life, The Cosby Show‘s influence on hip-hop and the time he went roller skating with Prince.
