Questlove has appeared on an episode of Sesame Street titled “The Big Pretend Band,” where The Roots drummer proceeds to get drum lessons from “one of the world’s most amazing drummers,” the one and only — Grover.
That’s right, the blue monster also known as Super Grover and Grover Monster, shows Quest a couple of drum patterns in hopes of giving the drummer a challenge. The bit begins with Grover talking about the letter “M” and how the word “Musician” begins with the letter. The puppet then introduces Quest as a musician, only to then have him go through some drum patterns.
“Did you get that? It’s OK if you need me to do it again,” Grover says to Quest at one point, only for the Philly drummer to pull of each pattern with ease.
