Quincy Jones: 'The Beatles were terrible musicians'

Jones has been married three times and has seven children including actress Rashida Jones 41

His first impression of the Beatles:That they were the worst musicians in the world.

Speaking to Vulture, Jones once again expresses his disdain for modern pop music, saying, "It's just loops, beats, rhymes and hooks".

Drummer Ringo Starr came in for particular opprobrium: "And Ringo?" He couldn't get it. We said, "Mate, why don't you get some lager and lime, some shepherd's pie, and take an hour-and-a-half and relax a little bit". Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. I said, "No problem".

Still, Jones likes Ringo as a person, calling him a "great guy", and he loves hanging out with U2 star Bono, adding, "He's doing good work all over the world".

Jones went on to say he wasn't a huge fan of rock because it "ain't nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues".

Yeah, man. I went on a trip on his yacht, and he had David Crosby, Joe Walsh, Sean Lennon - all those insane motherfuckers.

He added: "The whole world knows and should know that Turkey does not operate with the mentality of an invader". The attacks have so far killed four people, including Avlar.

Michael Jackson wasn't spared from Jones' interview, either. Here are five of the most arresting things he said, although it was a tough choice. He stole a lot of songs. [Donna Summer's] "State of Independence" and 'Billie Jean.' The notes don't lie, man.

On allegations against his friend, Bill Cosby, Brett Ratner and Harvey Weinstein: "It was all of them".

Jones also gossiped about the celebrities he's met during his more than 60-year career in the music industry (his pal Elon Musk apparently really wants Jones to go to Burning Man with him). In the GQ interview, Jones said he didn't think Elvis Presley could sing. "Anything! He'd f*** a mailbox".

Jones, who will release a memoir, shared his thoughts on Donald Trump and claimed that he dated Ivanka Trump in the past.

Jones says that in 2006, Ivanka requested to have dinner with him via Tommy Hilfiger (I warned you the man can name-drop with the best of "em). She's a fine motherf*****" She had the most handsome legs I ever saw in my life, ' Jones recalled.

To get back to gossip territory, Jones also claimed that Michael Jackson, whom he knew very well and worked with very closely, "stole a lot of stuff". Jones stated that he believed that Chicago mobster Sam Giancana killed former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. "Joe Kennedy - he was a bad man - he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes".
