Just like to wish ?uestlove a happy birthday today. He's definitely had a big impact on my drumming and my view of music as a whole.

Much love.

Are any of you going to LouFest this year? The Roots are slated to play, but ?uestlove is also DJing the after-party that Saturday Night (Aug. 27) along with Deerhunter. Here's a link with more details and ticket information:

Second. The thing I find so tremendous about it is that it's damn near exclusively played with eighths and it's not a groove with a lot of tricky sticking patterns to work through, yet he still makes it sound funky.

I am a huge Roots fan and equally as big a fan of Questo as well. But,

I can't believe Long Time hasn't been mentioned yet. His drumming in that is absolutely ridiculous and it's a mental exercise just trying to follow him every time I hear that song.

I drove from Rochester NY to Philly and back in one day just to see the Roots play live. Obsessed? Yep.

Long Time features a crazy cool groove, kind of similar in difficulty to Rising Up. It's obviously played with a much different attitude, but that's also a cool song to play to. If you check out his grooves on the John Legend/Roots album, some of those are also a bit much to keep up with, and are definitely some of his more noteworthy grooves.

Just saw Quest with The Roots for the first time live the other day in Miami. They've been my favorite band for five years, and seeing them live for the first time exceeded my expectations in many ways.

They did their own stuff as well as U2, The Who, Hendrix, Zeppelin, and Curtis Mayfield. What a show! They were all having so much fun on stage with each other as well, and that really transferred to the audience.
