I had the rare pleasure of interviewing The Roots’ Questlove for an Improve Your Taste column that’ll appear tomorrow on Nerve. Normal Improve Your Taste interviews (in which luminaries talk about their favorite pop-culture obsessions) take about ten minutes, but I was on the phone with Questlove for an hour, and while most of the stuff he talked about didn’t fit the column, it was all hilarious. We editors felt we’d be remiss in not sharing with you, our readers, at least one of his many entertaining tangents. Click to listen to Questlove heckling Roots guitarist "Captain" Kirk Douglas, and check back tomorrow for Questlove’s sharp and eclectic recommendations.
The Roots’ ninth album, How I Got Over, is available now.
