    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.

    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.

    Quoted from Billy16:

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

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

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Black musicians only invented the good musical forms:
    Jazz, Blues, Reggae, Rap, Soul, Folk and Rock n Roll

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

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    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!

    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!!
