Professor Questlove: The Roots Drummer To Teach At NYU

Prof. Questlove


The Roots drummer, ?uestlove is adding another gig to his busy schedule.  Billboard reports  the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show house band member will be teaching a class at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.  The Spring 2013 Semester Class will be devoted to Classic Albums and will most likely include:

Now I gotta go listen to “Off The Wall”…


Sly And The Family Stone, ‘Stand!’ and ‘There’s A Riot Goin’ On’
Aretha Franklin, ‘Lady Soul’
Led Zeppelin, ‘IV’
Prince, ‘Dirty Mind’
Michael Jackson, ‘Off The Wall’
The Beastie Boys, ‘Paul’s Boutique’

Questlove frequently tweets and the class was born out of an on line conversation he began in the comments section of a blog post. An intern at America’s NPR was not impressed by Public Enemy’s 1988 release, It Takes a Nation of Million to Hold Us Back. Questlove told the youngin’ why he thought he was misguided and one thing led to another.

I think we can safely assume  Professor Questloves class will be the most difficult class to get into next semester!
