We have to admit we were a little surprised to see the Roots' Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson at last night's opening party for Bryan Adams' "Hear the World" photography exhibit. "I'm actually a photographer myself, that's why I was drawn to the project" ?uestlove said, before naming as his favorite Bryan Adams song "The Boys of Summer." More excitingly, he also hinted that a certain mercurial-but-brilliant comedian might be considering a sequel to one of his greatest projects. "He wants to redo Block Party," ?uestlove told us when we asked after Dave Chappelle. "I saw Dave the night of Erykah [Badu]'s birthday party in Dallas." And where would a second installation of Dave Chappelle's Block Party occur? L.A.? Illadelph? "Over in Dubai," said ?uestlove. "Except he wants to spice it up a bit and have us perform with a 60-piece orchestra. He’s just like, ‘Promise me you’re going to rhyme over Star Wars, that’s all I want.’" What on earth are you talking about, we tried to ask, but then ?uestlove said, "Oh crap, I gotta go," and off he went. While we're having a little trouble imagining the atmosphere at a Dave Chappelle party on the Arabian peninsula, we bet Sheik Yerbouti would attend. —Randi Eichenbaum
