With a photo of Williams from Mork & Mindy, The Roots drummer started his Instagram post by writing, “Man. The smallest gesture can mean the world to you. Robin Williams made such an impact on me and didn’t even know it.”
We’re grateful that some of the greatest artists of all time are still adding to their respective legacies with excellent new albums. Here, then, are five great albums that legends released in 2013.
The drummer told SPIN magazine, “I’ve spent every free second of my life listening to music, watching Soul Train, creating music, and reading books about music. That’s what I did with my life.”
“We had 13 or 14 songs, but then we said, ‘Ooh! Wait a minute! Let’s replace four of these songs with four better songs!” Questlove said.
He stands with Kanye West, Jay-Z, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, fun., and Mumford & Sons as the six artists who have six nominations each, topping all other artists.
The Roots’ Questlove – drummer, DJ, “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” sidekick and man about town – will soon be Prof Questo.
