I had fun w you @deltaskymag. Also it was cool “busking” around the town w my @thepocketkit (the scene in #washingtonsquarepark w/ Yosuke, @david.yee11 & @louieleager was off the cuff—-heard them playing #Spain by #ReturnToForever & told them just walk into my shoot and start jamming. Damn those pigeons tho 🤬ha ha ha #Repost @deltaskymag ・・・ Our cover shoot with @questlove took our photographer and his team all over #manhattan from Tribeca to Battery City to the West Village and Times Square—with a drum set in tow.

Respect to the masterful #EdwinHawkins. His legendary #OhHappyDay was actually the premise for George Harrison’s #MySweetLord —but ultimately The Chifons’ writer Ronnie Mack claimed that it ripped off his #HesSoFine which sent ripples through the industry (something similar happened when TLC sampled & cleared Slick Rick’s #HeyYoungWorld for Creep —-but since they happened to sample the “guess who’s back?” part of the song (belonging to Shinehead a Jamaican artist) HE successfully sued & won millions even though the statue of limitations for Slick Rick was long over. So basically TLC had to pay for the clearance in 94 that def jam never paid when Rick sampled Shinehead back in 89)——ugh sorry to post jack a rip tribute to explain the industry but #EachOneTeachOne—-
Rest In Melody to #TheJBs pioneer #HearlonCheeseMartin (the guitarist who “layed deep in his grange” on the #LiveAtTheApolloVol3 from #NorthCarolina—-it’s near impossible to praise him and ignore his funk twin #JimmyChankNolen it’s so easy to take their power for granted but the juxtaposition of the lead pluck vs rhythm chord guitar was CRUCIAL to the funk—this clip from 72 is one of the TIIIIIGHTEST examples of how in tune the guitarwork duel got in James’s hey day. Damn this is magical. I want musicians to not reach so much and be teammates. Lock into a grove so simple AND TRUST THE PROCESS. You hear how magical this is? This is a motha! rip brother man.
Presenting the @DjClarkKent remix of “Space 2018” pre bday edition. Thanks bro! Thanks @Jumpman23 #ThankEathBunnyBwakBwak!
Damn. Delores O’riordan passed of #TheCranberries. rip.

#Repost @zarahzohlman ・・・ Oh hey, @theroots are on @latenightseth tonight as the musical guest, performing #itaintfair from the film “Detroit.” You should watch, especially if you’re an Academy voter. 🙏🤞
Every 100 eps I change drums. The artist of 800-899 is the gawd @FWMJ (link in his bio for ill shirts/stuff too) 🤜🏾🤛🏾
Lemme tell ya: when #LesPaul & #TBoneWalker are giving you WEEKLY LESSONS before the age of 10 in guitar technique and engineering? You are guaranteed to go far kid. One of THE BEST conversations we’ve had on @QLS. The @ROckHall legend himself #SteveMiller of @stevemillerband.official #SteveMillerBand takes us on a mindblowing journey of his life in music AND TECHNOLOGY (y’all ain’t ready for those stories) & business. Seriously I know I say EVERY #QuestloveSupreme is a must listen, but this is a damn tutorial on sticking to your guns when things don’t go your way and you need encouragement from someone who lived it and was persistent in his ways. Such a great episode!! Go to @qls follow us and hit the link in the bio. Only on @pandora
Thank You So Much @pastaflyer!
I’m sure the apologies are a coming. And the ads will be pulled. I’m certain there will Be media fixers and whatnot and maybe a grand gesture like a donation to some charity (donations under these circumstances are the corporate version #SomeOfMyBestFriendsAre move if there ever was one) all this tells me about @HM is that the seats in the boardroom lack something...wanna take a guess?
