Quincy Jones is 84 years old.

He’s past the point of giving a damn.

Jones, known as “Q” is listed on Wikipedia as “an American record producer, actor, conductor, arranger, composer, musician, television producer, film producer, instrumentalist, magazine founder, entertainment company executive, and humanitarian.”

The man has been friends with everyone from the Clintons to Michael Jackson and Frank Sinatra.  He’s engrained in America’s pop-culture and is as significant a figure in the music and film industries as there has ever been.

So when David Marchese, a reporter at Vulture.com, landed an in-depth interview with the outspoken Jones, you knew it would be interesting.

There is so much in this article that you really just have to read it for yourself.  I picked out a few of my favorite quotes from the story:

 

On Who Killed John F. Kennedy:

 

On What He Thought of The Beatles:

 

On How He Used to Date Ivanka Trump:

On How Everything He Did Was Big:

 

On How Michael Jackson Stole Music:

 

On Why Michael Jackson Had So Much Plastic Surgery:

 

On How There’s No Innovation in Modern Music:

On Marlon Brando Being Charming:

 

Seriously, head over to Vulture and read it for yourself.  It’s incredible.

About Gary Segars 507 Articles
Gary began his first website in 1998 as a sophomore in high school, writing reviews of cds and live shows in the Memphis area. He became editor of his college newspaper, then moved towards a career in music. He started the infamous MemphisTider.com blog during the 2006 football season, and was lucky enough to get into blogging just before the coaching search that landed Nick Saban at Alabama. The month and a half long coaching search netted his site, which was known for tracking airplanes, over 1 million hits in less than 90 days. The website introduced Gary to tons of new friends, including Nico and Todd, who had just started the site RollBamaRoll.com. After diving into more than just Alabama news, Gary started up his first installment of WinningCuresEverything.com in 2012. After keeping the site quiet for a while, it was started back up in April 2016. Gary then joined forces with high school friend Chris Giannini and began a podcast during the 2016 football season that runs at least 2 times a week, focusing on college football, NFL football, and sports wagering, and diving into other sports and pop-culture topics.
