(Music/News): Questlove to Write Book: “Mommy, What Is A Questlove?”

“We already know all too well about ?uestlove‘s nerdish tendencies when it comes to music – the man is a walking Encyclopedia, with a wealth of musical knowledge most mortals would be unable to retain. Now the man of many talents will try his hand at a book, combining his headful of music factoids with real life stories, celebrity encounters, and thoughts on life written in his signature stream-of-consciousness style. Even better is the tentative working title, “Mommy, What’s A Questlove?” (Grand Central Publishing) – props to the first OKPer to reveal that reference in the comments. There’s no word yet on the release date for this book (we’re told it might be a long deadline – over a year to be sure), but I, for one, am thrilled to know that it’s in the works.” –OkayPlayer

The Billboard issue seen above is available now! John Legend & The Roots’ Wake Up also in stores now!
