Quincy Jones: Beatles "Worst Musicians", MJ "Stole Songs"

 

Warning: The above video has a lot of "f" words! Apparently, Quincy frequently says "M-effer".

Legendary music producer Quincy Jones dished on what he really thinks of some of his most famous collaborators, from The Beatles to Michael Jackson, in a wide-ranging interview with Vulture.

Though they're widely regarded as one of the greatest bands to ever play, Jones' first impression of The Beatles was hardly complimentary.

In fact, his initial reaction to the mop-top Liverpudlians was that "they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing m-----------s."

He took particular issue with Paul McCartney's bass-playing skills ("Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard") and Ringo's drumming ("Don't even talk about it").

Meanwhile, Jones had plenty more to say on Michael Jackson, who bought The Beatles catalogue in 1985 as part of a multimillion dollar deal for Sony/ATV.

Jones who famously produced many of Jackson's albums, including 1982's record-shattering "Thriller" — described his late pal as a "Machiavellian" and "greedy" man who swiped tracks from other artists without credit.

Jones, 84, cited "Billie Jean" as an example, and said the riff came straight from the 1982 Donna Summer track "State of Independence," which Jones had produced and on which Jackson sang backup.

"I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs," Jones said. "The notes don't lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come."                                    

"I used to kill him about the plastic surgery, man. He'd always justify it and say it was because of some disease he had. Bulls--t," Jones said. "He had a problem with his looks because his father told him he was ugly and abused him. What do you expect?"

Jones also recently claimed that he dated Ivanka Trump (he does NOT think much of her dad!) and that Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye, and Marlon Brando were bi-sexual. (watch the above video....)
