Coachella 2011: ?uestlove Roots drummer shares his DJing philosophy

Eric Helton

Before DJing at Rolling Stone's Escape From Indio party last night at the Coachella Festival, ?uestlove of the Roots told us about the philosophy behind his DJ sets. "My whole goal in doing these DJ gigs is to sort of trick people into learning something," he says. "It's easy, especially with the way technology is built now where anybody can be a DJ. If you want to rock a party, let's see you succeed playing Kermit the Frog. I'm definitely going to play Kermit the Frog in the first hour tonight."
