Questlove Goes ‘Meta’ In New Memoir

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the Roots co-founder, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon band leader, and harbinger of all things cool, is drumming up a new memoir called Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove.

According to a press release Mo’ Meta Blues will tell stories of the composer’s influences and “some pivotal moments in Black music and pop culture.” The book will also delve into his early years and life as the son of doo-wop singer Lee Andrews of Lee Andrews & the Hearts.

Because Questo has lots of thoughts on music and more, he will unload his “musings about the state of hip hop, the state of music criticism… as well as a plethora of run-ins with celebrities, idols and fellow artists.”

While Questlove is an indefatigable Twitter, for Mo’ Meta Blues he called on New Yorker editor and novelist Ben Greenman to work with him on this, his first book. Mo’ Meta Blues will be available on June 18 through Grand Central Publishing.
