We’re collectively suffering course-envy.
Questlove and Spinna were the first to arrive (McBride was stuck in traffic). Questlove immediately launched into how he fell in love with Stevie Wonder’s music. “I spoke with every hip-hop producer I know, that I respect, and we all had the same genesis. It was that one episode of The Cosby Show.” Several in the class nodded in agreement. The episode in question, entitled “A Touch of Wonder,” featured Stevie Wonder recording with the Huxtable family after Denise crashes her car into his limo.
Questlove also described the greatest night of his life. It was an evening where he played with Stevie in Prince’s living room whilst Joni Mitchell “did a drunk girl dance.” It sounded like the greatest night anyone has ever had, ever.
