The way Questlove explained it, this was his Beastie Boys Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame demo, which he submitted to the staff and other prospects for the show. It is a map of some of the best Beasties songs, which he hand-picked himself, for Beasties set.
“Of course i didn’t HAVE to make a full scale Doc Brown Back To The Future Clock Tower model…..but it was fun and i wanted no leaf unturned. I got 0 resistance from the parties involved and this is the demo the director used to map out the staging and Travie, Kid Rock & Black Thought used to study the manual.“
It’s pretty interesting to hear what goes on behind-the-scenes to make what you see on stage happen every year. Check out Quest’s demo mix above.
