This is both insightful and impressive. Success is rarely a fluke! He has a process, works hard, and is locked in on making a difference.
Love this insight. I was listening to Steve Lemacq 6 Music Recommends on BBC6 thinking I would be inspired by this "new music" versus listening to KEXP or regular BBC6 playlist...and it just sucked, everything was overproduced and predictable. Speaking of predictable...I am in bad routine since Pandemic: I drink coffee and eat too much toast and watch YouTube music videos to start my day. Must channel Questlove.
Questloooove! Have you read his book The Creative Quest? So much hilarity and magic and good stories about other artists and practices in there...
