Questlove is always happy to share anecdotes about Prince: those who read the drummer's 2013 memoir, Mo' Meta Blues, will remember his story about roller skating with the star. "[Prince] took out the strangest, most singu­lar pair of roller skates I had ever seen. They were clear skates that lit up, and the wheels sent a multicolored spark trail into your path. He took them out and did a big lap around the rink. Man. He could skate like he could sing."

Questlove revealed another amusing story yesterday via Twitter. "@Prince3EG once fired me from a dj gig in a nightclub," he wrote. In the place of a set from the celebrated record head, Prince showed the movie Finding Nemo.

The trailer for the Nemo sequel Finding Dory came out yesterday. Watch that below.
