Its a hella-good article. Really captures ?uest in a good light. They should make a book and a tv-movie about him. Its aboutt ime Inquirer magazine covered someone other than some transported Israeli flutist or a brazilian dancer for once.

awhile back in the updates ?uest was talking about a 'bone wanting to hook him up

"He has even helped the new project from smooth-jazz veteran Boney James"

was this what he was talking about??

but wow great article, thanks for the hook up mpozi

Beautiful article! And I thought reading about D'Angelo was good. I tried to just skim it, but I couldn't. I'll have to print this and add it to my collection. Thanks to Mpozi for posting the link.

we really need some more literature on hip hop and i think qool quest is the one to do it.
16574, great article- thank you
Posted by shockzilla, Sun May-06-01 09:45 PM
probably the best article i've read on ?uestlove. maybe media ish like that should be archived on THIS site.

and just to co-sign with the mighty mosaic's suggestion re: a ?uestlove book-- hell, yes. i've just about read all the Root's liner notes to death now, a book would be great. (know the guy is busy, but he IS good at that whole multi-tasking thing. said so in the Inquirer, no less.)

Celebrating May as Prince Month at Okayplayer dot com

Hey lover, I've got a sugarcane/That I wanna lose in U, baby can U stand the pain? - soft & wet
And I get discouraged /Cuz U treat me just like a child - I wanna be your lover
And U were so strange /U didn't have the decency 2 change the sheets – when u were mine
People call me rude, I wish we were all nude /I wish there was no black and white, I wish there were no rules – controversy
I guess I should’ve known by the way U parked your car sideways /That it wouldn't last – little red corvette
Be your fire when U're cold – I would die 4 u
Oh - every single day is a yellow day /I'm blinded by the daisies in your yard - condition of the heart
Meet me in another world, space, and joy/ Vous êtes très belle, mama, girls and boys – girls & boys
And it was Joni singing, "Help me, I think I'm falling" – dorothy parker
Come bathe with me – let's drown each other in each other's emotions – when 2 r in love
Ah, ah, every time U kiss me - lemon crush/Nay, I can't resist thee - lemon crush- lemon crush
Love - come quick/Love - come in a hurry - theives in the temple
Just when U think U've got more than enough /That's when it all up and flies away – money don’t matter 2 night
I am yours now and U are mine /And 2gether we'll love through all space and time /So don't cry /One day all 7 will die – 7
So here I sit in my lonely room lookin' 4 my sunshine/But all I've got is 2 cigarettes and this broken heart of mine – 17 days
The act of showing her how good it used 2 be /I want it 2 be so good she falls back in love with me – I hate u
Girl, can U understand I never used 2 go dancin'? /I.. I was the kind of man who'd rather stay at home – pink cashmere
And by the stroke of midnight she wanted some more (more) /Showin' dirty movies like some kind of whore - dinner w/delores
Sittin' in the corner in your underwear /Lettin' me caress your nappy hair - joint 2 joint

Tap dancing? Ya know I had to ask. But that was a great article. I loved how it ended...the continuing circle of music, and how it flows. From Wonder to Thompson to (?). When I heard of the BBE series and the producers that were going to be included, I knew what some of them were going to sound like. For example, I kinda had an idea of what Jay Dee and Pete Rock were going to sound like. I kinda have an idea of what James Poyser is going to sound like. Now ?uest? I don't know...I'm just really excited about what he's going to bring to the table. R&B Soul? Hip-Hop? Jazz? Funk? What?

16583, I like the 'perfect pitch' part
Posted by guest, Fri May-11-01 04:20 PM
I've played the piano since I was five and I was always jealous of those kids who had perfect pitch. It's not surprising with all the things he's accomplished that ?uest has such a gift. What's even worse are those kids who had pp and didn't give a shit about music. Glad to see ?uest did something with his. I kinda see it like Allen Iverson's quickness - it's one of those things that only God can give you.
