What is Questlove saying?

OK, I am probably going to get slammed for this, but I noticed this awhile back and just want someone to get me lined out. At the beginning of the Roots band set on The Tonight Show, someone..(I think it is Q) shouts out a number, then they all start playing. Last night he shouts "1017" and off they go. A couple of other nights I know he shouted out some other number, but I couldn't make out what it was.

I know this sounds crazy or maybe it has already been covered here, but does that number mean something? Knowing how he was a friend of Prince's, could it possibly be the number of days since he left the earth? That number would be wrong for February 18, 2019 (yesterday) but that is all I could come up with. If it means something else, what is it??? I feel silly for even guessing this....

hmm

I think it’s the number of Tonight Show episodes they’ve done.

On Late Night, it was area codes... on Tonight Show it's usually the episode number. If it's area codes, he'll usually say the name of the city, unlike on Late Night where he'd just say the area code and nothing else.

This is exactly what it is. He's been yelling a number since day 1, well before Prince died. The number of days they've done episodes and the days Prince died were eventually going to align because Prince is consecutively dead, but The Tonight Show doesn't tape or air every single day.

So no, it's not about Prince. it's literally the episode number.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

You could have entered a few key words in Google and found the answer yourself, yet instead you imagined some kind of ridiculous theory and wrote 150+ words and started a thread on the Org. Why?

No one cares what your tired mind is thinking anymore, you just say the say the same things over and over again when people rub you wrong, go back under your rock or whereever you dwell.

Because Quest was such a good friend of his, I immediately thought of Prince. Besides, I like to write....why U on here? By the way, thanks for holding up 4 me the rest of you guys. Bart- thanks for reading my 150! Love you too, ya know. All made in his image........................

For the same reason you took the time to craft a response that doesn't actually enhance or contribute to this thread. Prince.org is not a business. I imagine most people are here at their leisure. If your precious time is being wasted at this site you could always, you know, stop visiting.
