Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, The Roots’ drummer and frontman, is looking for your help. He related a story on facebook when was in a Portland nightclub in 1976 at the age of five. He was waiting for his parents to finish their sets, and started talking with “older woman” named Ellie. She ended up buying him a stereo and a record collection. Now, he wants to find her!
The start of my record collection starts with this note.
“Ahmir Do NOT talk to strangers when we are onstage!!!”
