Quincy: Hendrix was intimidated, Rock is R&B, Beatles are bad musicians

Quincy is showing his ass

Really? The Charlie Parker concert with Mingus and those guys?
Yeah, man. I saw the contract after. The whole band made $1,100. I’ll never forget that. At the time it was just another gig. It wasn’t historical. Like with Woodstock, Tito Puente told me he wanted to go out to that gig. Those festivals ain’t my thing. Elon Musk keeps trying to get me to go to Burning Man. No thank you. But who knew what Woodstock would turn out to be? Jimi Hendrix was out there fucking up the national anthem.

Wasn’t Hendrix supposed to play on Gula Matari?
He was supposed to play on my albumApparently, Hendrix was supposed to lend guitar work to Jones’s 1970 album Gula Matari, which arrived at a time when the guitarist was expanding his musical vocabulary beyond rock and blues and into jazz and funk. Sadly, he didn’t get far, dying of asphyxiation in September of that same year. and he chickened out. He was nervous to play with Toots Thielemans, Herbie Hancock, Hubert Laws, Roland Kirk — those are some scary motherfuckers. Toots was one of the greatest soloists that ever fucking lived. The cats on my records were the baddest cats in the world and Hendrix didn’t want to play with them.

What’d you think when you first heard rock music?
Rock ain’t nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues, motherfucker. You know, I met Paul McCartney when he was 21.

What were your first impressions of the Beatles?
That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it. I remember once we were in the studio with George Martin, and RingoJones arranged a version of “Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing” for Starr’s 1970 solo debut album Sentimental Journey, which was produced by the Beatles’ frequent collaborator George Martin. The song, and album, are more than a bit gloopy. had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song. 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.” So he did, and we called Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer. Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes back and says, “George, can you play it back for me one more time?” So George did, and Ringo says, “That didn’t sound so bad.” And I said, “Yeah, motherfucker because it ain’t you.” Great guy, though.

Were there any rock musicians you thought were good?
I used to like Clapton’s band. What were they called?

Cream.
Yeah, they could play. But you know who sings and plays just like Hendrix?

Who?
Paul AllenThe Microsoft co-founder and multibillionaire has a collection of yachts and guitars to rival the world’s finest, both of which he apparently makes good use of. .

Stop it. The Microsoft guy?
Yeah, man. I went on a trip on his yacht, and he had David Crosby, Joe Walsh, Sean Lennon — all those crazy motherfuckers. Then on the last two days, Stevie Wonder came on with his band and made Paul come up and play with him — he’s good, man.

Hendrix actually did jam with Roland Kirk. Sadly it was never recorded but it was a jam that didn't go too far..Kirk actually respected Hendrix....Same thing happened with Tony Williams (Miles Davis drummer)...Jimi was also friends with Coltrane...Guess Q didn't know that. neutral

As I said in another thread.....I will always admire and respect Quincy for his amazing talent,career and accomplishments,but I think he's gone crazy in his old age lol his recent interviews are filled with questionable comments and opinions.It almost seems as if he's purposely trying to shock everyone,one last time....trying to ruffle some feathers before his final day.

You only focusing on the 20% of the interview. Actually it was very well done and loved his blunt honesty.

Richard Pryor's wife confirmed Richard slept with Marlon Brando for example.

Lots to be learned here about the state of music and whom he admires today.
I knew somebody would only quote what they want out of it.

Why? I think Q has reached an age, he doesn't give a fuck about being diplomatic. Disagree, fine but the last time I checked the Mr. Jones wrote a lot of music and assisted a lot of bands, groups, and singers. He was kinda there... Yes, Q has proven he has a bit of ego. lol I'm looking forward to more off the cuff remarks; what he really thought instead of the neutral remarks he usually maintained.


As far as M.J. borrowing others people music or riffs... the late MJ standing in a long line.. Some music rags back of the day mentioned some of the borrowing. Quincy Jones has been accused of borrowing t00. Maybe Mr. Jones will address that as well... holding my breath. lol

Sorry but Quincy only lashes out to people who are dead and can't defend themselves.
And about Jimi's situation I'll take Miles Davis's account of Hendrix over anything that old lying ass Quincy Jones has to say.
Hell I'll take Mile Davis; and Herbie Hancock's genious over anything Quincy Jones has done. As an MJ fan I respect him for his contributions to his career but that's about it.
Quincy seems like creepy guy with all those 2Pac stories from back in the day.

Some people can't take the truth or have their assumptions deconstructed. In terms of Quincy take... he thought the Beatles sucked as musicians. Paul and John's song writing is up there with the Gershwin brothers. (IMHO) Its his personal opinion and Q has the right to have them, just as everyone else has a right to have there's, some folks need to take a deep breath.
