Very cool! I'm in the middle of making an animation kind of like this (not about music biz stars but more like a School House Rock video).

Thanks for sharing. Hilarious. Maybe Prince wanted more of a get crunk, I'm about to get in your a@$ vibe while playing pool. Questlove was playing "for lover's only" or "jazz on a rainy day" music. You can't demolish the opposition (the way you want) listening to that music Quest was spinning!

Fela Kuti is neither of those things though. I can imagine Zombie being a really cool soundtrack to a game of pool, but who knows why Prince did what he did, he's a weird guy, as I'm sure we're all aware. Anyway cool story, liked it a lot smile

Cool video. I never knew pool was another game Prince like playing. I only ever hear of basketball and ping pong.

I think Patti LaBelle made a mention of Prince's billiard skills on Arsenio back in the early 90s...

Make it so, Number One...

I think that video gives some real insight in how so many things around Prince seem haphazard, last minute and poorly planned... it's because they are! I think Prince only does that ish though to people he figures will put up with it. Makes him feel important. He ain't that type of crazy. If he were, you'd hear stories about him more frequently acting crazy while doing normal people things. In like, a Dunkin Donuts demanding Big Macs and a wheelbarrow and whatnot.

That's so funny. What a great animation. Questlove knows how to tell a story. I love the part when Prince is "speedin' 40 mph around the stadium... on this golfcart" and "he's whippin' this cart like it's golfin' furious."



His story about Patti LaBelle is equally hilarious. Love it.

No it doesnt....Musicology tour was managed and maximized Prince's earning potential beautifully..From interviews etc...He asked for a place to chill after the show, a lot of times, those are last minute things

Very, very, very cool.

Any story involving Fela and Prince should win its own award.

Go, Questlove!

Reminds me of this picture I saw that had a pool ball with an image of a brown eye on it, in a location that reflected the image on the pool ball.

Questlove is in a steady relationship????


Good for him, scattered hope for me. Me little star crush just got crushed.

That was about 9 years ago right? So either he's super taken by now, or he's looking for you. smile

Well... I tell you what else it says. For FAMS... you guys decide to late-pay your bills and run out to see Prince because he likes to announce shit at the last minute... just remember how Questlove, azz-kisser-to-all-things-80's-but-especially-Prince, was able to arrange 10 front row seats for his crew, plus a meet and greet with Prince before the show and a seat onstage for himself... ALL FOR FREE.. while yo azz was ridin' nose-bleed and taking out paday loans and you probably couldn't see shit! Also, you guys are all pretty talented... make your own Prince cartoon, and post a link to it and let's see how long before the Pasiley Police decide to shut your copyright infringing azz down son. biggrin

I guess the point of this story for Questlove was to tell the world that he discovered Fela before Prince did. Prince only caught up later. Because Quest is so cool.

The wooh is on the one!

No not really but i'd well believe that Questlove listens to a hell of a lot more of other people's music than Prince does.

- Are you living on Mars? Celebreties get free tickets and swag all the time. Not a big deal. People are free to as they please their money and you need to spend less time worrying about. During the ONA tour some fans got to move up to the front seat and the front seat person gets to sit on the stage so he has hooked up fans before.
