With a photo of Williams from Mork & Mindy, The Roots drummer started his Instagram post by writing, “Man. The smallest gesture can mean the world to you. Robin Williams made such an impact on me and didn’t even know it.”
Philadelphia native and drummer for the Roots, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson is penning a book about the history of Soul Train.

“We had 13 or 14 songs, but then we said, ‘Ooh! Wait a minute! Let’s replace four of these songs with four better songs!” Questlove said.
The Roots’ Questlove – drummer, DJ, “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” sidekick and man about town – will soon be Prof Questo.
