    This is what Quincy Jones had to say about the Beatles (and so many other things and celebrities) in an interview in February in Vulture. It is quite an fascinating article, try to read the whole thing.

    https://www.vulture.com/2018/02/quincy-jones-in-conversation.html

    Two weeks later he posted an apology on Twitter, after being lectured by his 6 daughters, not about the content but what he called the "word vomit".

    I had posted this on another Beatles thread but as I really thought it was beyond interesting, I started a new post with it, so more pinsiders can read it.

    Quincy has always had a lot of opinions. He has even more when he gets boozed-up.

    Quoted from Billy16:

    He states he has been dry for 3 years if you read.

    Doesn't belong in Stern Pinball area.

    arrogant piece of "CHIT"

    Just because you can arrange and produce music doesn't make you less an idiot. He is just better at certain things most aren't. Just like great chess players really aren't genius people, they are just bread to do one thing incredibly well.

    What else is new with black musicians and producers, they apparently invented all music and whitey stole it all. What a crock of shit. Long before the blues and rock and metal and rap there was the greatest music of all time and in my opinion the only one with a gurantee of existing in the distant future. Classical. Quincy sounds like a douchebag in that interview and who cares anyway, he won't be remebered. Frank will but not this guy.

    As a Canadian, I don't know if you appreciate jazz for what it was. Turning classical inside out and upside down. Black musicians did that. Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane were the Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart of the 20th century. Most "black" music after that, with the exception of funk had very little talent involved other than a good voice or a big ass.

    Since we are talking about stuff that has nothing to do with the Beatles pinball machine, I’ll point out that Richard Pryor’s daughter confirmed jones’ claim that Richard did indeed have sex with marlon Brando.

    Talk about bustin’ Loose!

    Black musicians only invented the good musical forms:

    Jazz, Blues, Reggae, Rap, Soul, Folk and Rock n Roll

    Quincy was involved with some of the most important music of his time and directly influenced many of the musicians of his time.... In all genres.

    Very nice! Learned something new, ty for sharing.
    Very ahead of their time. Did not know either they inspired the same Led Zeppelin song.

    I do not know if those two had sex, but I find the full quote from Pryor's daughter way out there and hilarious!
    “If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning”
    OMG!!

    Levi, Brando had sex with anything that moved for 60 years with about 20 illegitimate children to prove it! The "gay" rumors I never understood when he was popping out kids like a bunny rabbit.

    After reading as much of the article as I could stand, if this is Quincy off the booze he needs to get back on it.

    I like jazz, love funk, and I agree its a direct decendant of classical, white and black musicians are responsible for that transformation. However you never hear classical artists claiming Jazz was stolen or any of that crap. Now to put The Bird Miles, Coltrane in any kind of comparison with Bach, Beethoven and Mozart is just simply ridiculous to me personally. I really appreciate all 3 of them but not even close. Lastly being Canadian? come on man. What the hell do you think we were listening to at that time? Ahhh sweet American ignorance.

    It's called bisexual. It's the B in LGBTQ

    Also this thread doesn't belong in Stern Pinball.

    They aren't rumors and they aren't gay.

    "bisexual" is a thing!

    I'm not saying they are the same level of composers, I'm saying they were the best the twentieth century had to offer. Jazz was an American thing first and foremost and expanded from there. My "American ignorance" was just stating a difference of perspective. I was just trying to reason why you would feel a certain way and you have to throw your "Canadian Superiority Complex" at me? I wasn't trying to be a jerk, so what do you say we drop the Nationalism and hug it out.

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    "Canadian Superiority Complex"

    I think its the opposite. Douchebag Canadians like Douchebag Americans have "superiority complex" issues Americans more so but yes let us hug it out sir. Now I disagree with the best the 20th century had to offer as none of them produced anything in the same class as Rachmaninoff or Stravinsky. Anyway lets just agree Quincy is a douchebag.
