Quincy Jones Interview with David Marchesse for Vulture.com.... One word.. Wow!

 

Okay Y'all. Quincy has some things to say that will probably floor you.  Some things he said, I always suspected.  For instance, he said he "killed" Michael over the constant plastic surgery, meaning he called him out  on it because Quincy thought it was too much. I always wondered if Michael had friends bold enough to tell him that he had gone too far.  He also said Michael stole a lot of music and didn't credit people properly on some occasions.  He also thought that Beatles could barely play when he was in the studio with them.  It's not so much gossip as it is a compelling back and forth...conversation and reflections, strong opinions and observations from one of the greatst, from a man who's 85 and has no fear of saying what's on his mind, though he does stop short on a few things. He jammed in Italy with Mussolini's son regularly, yes that Mussolini!!!   There's insight about life  like the importance of true musical education and how it's lacking in  the current practitioners of the craft (pop stars)  Fascinating.... fascinating.
