?uestlove to team up with Amy Winehouse The Roots drummer hopeful despite singer's visa troubles Ahmir Thompson, best known as The Roots acclaimed drummer annex producer ?uestlove, has confirmed that he and British soul singer Amy Winehouse are forming a new project, also featuring producer Raphael Saadiq on guitar Ahmir Thompson, best known as The Roots’ acclaimed drummer annex producer ?uestlove, has confirmed that he and British soul singer Amy Winehouse are forming a new project, also featuring producer Raphael Saadiq on guitar.

Unfortunately, due to previous drug convictions, Amy Winehouse has hard troubles procuring a visa to cross the United States borders. It's not the first time: in 2008 the singer failed to gain entry to the US so she could not appear at the Grammy Awards.

Undeterred, ?uestlove claims the group will definitely happen:
"It’s just the closest she can come to the States is Jamaica. I’m off to France soon so I’ll see if she’s up for discussing it over dinner. We're Skyping the shit out of each other."
