Questlove says Alan Leeds is writing a book on his work with Prince

https://twitter.com/House...7975271427

According to ?uestlove, Alan Leeds is writing right now a book on his work with Prince: one of the most awaited Prince-related books ever!

.

He did that comment at 1 h 22 min, while playing this James Brown session. (Thanks to Daniel for the heads up!)

Why does Alan need Quest to tell us about his book?

Well, Quest isn't just telling "us". Think of it like this: hardcore Prince fans would hear of the book anyway because as a whole, they tend to be up to date on this sort of thing. Questlove, however, has a platform branching out to different demographics, and it could open avenues of interest in Leeds' book, particulary musicians' and music academic/historian circles. Any musician that has the chance to bring their writing to a figure and a platform as influential as Quest has grown to be is just utilizing good, old-fashioned marketing.

I get that. But the list of rumored books is sooo long, granted some have been completed and released but many more are still just rumor or have evaporated. Another rumor from someone who isn't doing the actual writing nor is a publisher is just becoming another log on the pile. Quest is doing fine doing his things he delivers.

No it isn't. Go on, prove me wrong, post that "loooong" list of rumored books.

.

Hilarious. A published book is a "rumored" book in your mind?

.


but many more are still just rumor or have evaporated.

.

Which? Go on, post that list as well.

.

Oh for crying out loud. You didn't even bother to listen to the relevant clip, did you? This is all just nonsense you spew, based on zero actual knowledge.

Is this supposed to annoy me or something? It seems like a bunch of silly moot points that went way beyond what I said which I stand by and wasn't all that serious. The question is at this point who isn't rumored to be writing a book, that's a way shorter list. Most of the books are or were rumors at some point in the timeline since Apr. 21st 2016. Probably could count on one hand with fingers left over the books that just popped up unannounced.


Are you getting paid per click cause you are taking it a bit too seriously?

Then post your list(s) and the sources. But you cannot because you just made shit up.

I might selectively read a few of these...based on reviews. And Prince relevance. Otherwise I don't have much interest either way.

OMG a rebuttal. I think I should get a blue ribbon for that.


I'm not posting a thing, we all (who cares anyway) know who has made mention, ie rumored, they're putting out a book and which one of those actually have. I don't care who is whose favorite and who they want a book from, i don't want everybody's book either. I just got a chuckle out of Quest announcing someone else's book and it ended there for me.
