"The Time I Went Rollerskating With Prince" - from Questlove's autobiography

http://www.slate.com/blog...ok_mo.html

I thought this was interesting, and didn't see it posted anywhere on here. I apologize if this is a dup. I love the description of Prince's rollerskates. Hilarious!

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

Need more sleep than coke or methamphetamine.

Agreed. "I'm a comedian, and honestly, what's funnier than that?"

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

"When I got back, Prince had the briefcase out on the floor. He clicked the lock and opened it, and took out the strangest, most singu­lar pair of roller skates I had ever seen. They were clear skates that lit up, and the wheels sent a multicolored spark trail into your path."

Clear skates that light up and shoot a spark trail. In a briefcase. Who else could pull that off?

I don't think this is a dupe thread, but this is not the first time Questlove has told this story, nor the first time related on the org.

See here (there's a couple more/different details to this same story):

Read it back in the late 80,$. Don't recall where tho. Cool story.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.
