(no really his buttermilk fried drumstick game is apparently WICKED ) , drum beatin, Afro donning brotha has done it again, right on the heels of this summer’s best seller “Mo Betta Blues: The World According to Questlove” . Mr. Late Night pens yet another must read documenting the power , influence, admiration and souuuulllllll of our beloved “Soul Train” .
Soul Train: The Music,Dance and Style of a Generation
Check out a little Isley Bros. denim twin set magic right chea as preparation for the spirit of the book. You know, it is rumored that Ahmir”Questlove” Thomson possesses the most vast collection of Soul Train episodes in the entire world.. He is well versed in Soul Trainology lol.. he can tell you who was on keys in the back during Taste of Honey’s performance of Sukiyaki LOL.. as most of us black kids growin up in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s would be. No I am lying he really will throw the third percussionist from the left’s name and resume’ from the Roy Ayers Ubiquidity ep in your face before you can remember which fool he is talking about .. HAHA.. .. This book also includes a foreword from Gladys Knight so you know it’s real lol and a preface by NICK CANNON.. (yeah I know but Nick is bringing Soul Train back to television this year on NBC )
