Any person must go decide up a number of circumstances of bleach pens, as a result of in a brand new interview with Vulture’s David Marchese revealed earlier right this moment, multi-platinum report producer/multi-hyphenate music mogul Quincy Jones drops a half-century’s value of piping-hot gossip everywhere in the web’s lap. Within the interview, Jones, who clearly doesn’t give a flying fuck on the age of 84, reveals such info as:
- Jones, a self-proclaimed “canine,” went out to dinner with Ivanka Trump about 10 years in the past, an occasion he describes as a “date.” Whether or not she additionally thought as a lot is unclear. He expresses assist for the #TimesUp motion, although, saying, “ladies needed to put up with fucked-up shit” by the hands of “jive motherfuckers” like Harvey Weinstein. (He wouldn’t touch upon Invoice Cosby.) He provides, “ladies and brothers—we’re each coping with the glass ceiling.”
- Bono is cool, and lets Jones keep at his fort when he’s in Eire, however U2 sucks now.
- Marlon Brando, an excellent pal of Jones’, could have had intercourse with Richard Pryor. Jones implies as a lot, at the least, saying of Brando: “He was essentially the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck something. Something! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye … He didn’t give a fuck!”
However maybe Jones’ harshest disses are concerning the Beatles, who he describes as “the worst musicians on the earth.” To wit:
They have been no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass participant I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even discuss it. I keep in mind as soon as we have been within the studio with George Martin, and Ringo had taken three hours for a four-bar factor he was making an attempt to repair on a tune. He couldn’t get it. We mentioned, “Mate, why don’t you get some lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie, and take an hour-and-a-half and calm down a bit bit.” So he did, and we known as Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer. Ronnie got here in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes again and says, “George, are you able to play it again for me yet another time?” So George did, and Ringo says, “That didn’t sound so dangerous.” And I mentioned, “Yeah, motherfucker as a result of it ain’t you.” Nice man, although.
In brief, it’s a wild interview, and we haven’t even gotten into half of it right here. Blissful Wednesday, and keep in mind: “Rock ain’t nothing however a white model of rhythm and blues, motherfucker.”
