Questlove talks to Terry Gross about his nonchalance:
I learned long ago to curb my enthusiasm. This is the one character trait in me that people closest to me absolutely abhor: The fact that I’m very nonchalant about everything. I say everything with the most casualness of, you know, ‘It’s no big deal.’ I’m not saying that it wasn’t a big deal, it’s just I’ve come to the realization that every day my life has this sort of Forrest Gump experience. Every day is an ‘I was there’ moment. So it just becomes a little redundant to get excited about every day when every day is sort of like a high.
