Hip-hop drummer Questlove is fulfilling a life-long dream by working on a book about celebrated music Tv show Soul Train.

The Roots drummer, real name Ahmir Thompson, published an autobiography earlier this year (13) and he is now working on a second book, titled Soul Train: The Music, Dance And Style Of A Generation.

Thompson, who has seen rare pictures from the show and watched all 1,117 episodes in preparation for the project, called the opportunity to work on the book "a dream come true".

Soul Train was a music show shown in the U.S. from 1971 to 2006
