?uestlove is kind of antisocial, but he's willing to change his ways
In discussing his passion for music as a cost of "emotional development with real-life humans":
"... So last night I'm at a dinner; I thought I was having a one-on-one dinner with a friend of mine who was on the show recently... Suddenly I'm eating dinner with two people I definitely know and 10 strangers I don't know... And can I tell you that three hours into it, it was the best time of my life? I was borderline kicking myself because I was like, "Yo! Damn!" One of the people there, a known actor, I thought I could have been this guy's best friend. I was thinking about the first time we met, back in '95, and I was like, "Aw man, I'm antisocial but this guy could have been my best friend."
My whole point is that at that moment, I realized I could actually use some friends... Maybe I had a moment of regret that night at dinner when we all said good night and I was like "Whoa, I need friends." I'm looking at their phone numbers and I'm like, should I call them again?"
