Found something last week that made me really happy. ?uestlove, drummer and producer for The Legendary Roots Crew, put this out into the world in honor of what would have been Adam Yauch’s birthday.
It’s a demo ?uestlove made because The Beasties are being inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame this year and there will be a tribute performance.
So ?uestlove says he puts this thing together during his lunch break (The Roots are also the house band for the Jimmy Fallon Show, in case you didn’t know.) It’s not clear whether he played all the instruments besides drums, but it is pretty clear that he did all the Beastie Boy voices. Which is hilarious and awesome because of the lines he comes up with and, you know, the voices.
The whole thing is super well done and very impressive for a lunch break quickie.
