Robin Williams: ‘Legend’

12 Aug, 2014

Questlove posts an Instagram tribute to the time Williams name-checked him in an elevator at the Grammy awards ceremony:

This particular Sunday we were walking backstage and had to ride the elevator to the backstage area and we piled inside when suddenly this voice just said “questlove… thought….rahzel….the roots from Philadelphia!!!! That’s right you walked on this elevator saying to yourself “ain’t no way this old white dude knows my entire history and discography”….we laughed so hard. That NEVER happened to is before. Someone a legend acknowledged us and really knew who we were.
