*Bowlegged Lou here speaking on behalf of myself & Full Force.
We would love to congratulate our boys. The Legendary Roots, with our brother Ahmir Khalib Thompson aka Questlove and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter!
Questlove will be making history in becoming the first hip hop influenced but yet versatile band leader for the iconic TONIGHT SHOW brand.
QuestLove is following the historic footsteps of former Tonight show band leaders such as Skitch Henderson(Jack Paar/Steve Allen),Doc Severinsen(Johnny Carson), Max Weinberg (Conan O Brien), Brandford Marsalis, Kevin Eubanks, Ricky Minor (Jay Leno),etc.
We (Full Force) was so honored in having our brother QuestLove participate in our TV One UnSung Documentary-The Full Force Story where Quest & other friends helped to make our story the highest rated UnSung in TV One history at the time. We, Full Force would like to return the favor by writing this positive story in support of you.
We love you Ahmir & we wish you the best as you’ve always continued to elevate your game along with our other brothers from THE ROOTS as not only being a great, great hip hop band, but being a versatile great show biz band period! From great albums & music from your beginning to now adding another chapter in your career by creating TV history.
