Quincy Jones is a legend of a music producer. The man is larger-than-life and has been the best in the business for decades. He's won 28 Grammys and produced all of Michael Jackson's biggest-selling albums. Jones is now 84 years old, and he's not slowing down anytime soon. He recently sat down with Vulture's David Marchese and gave a truly insane, tell-all interview that's full of incredible revelations and taboo confessions about pretty much everything under the sun. "All I've ever done is tell the truth," Jones told Marchese. "I've got nothing to be scared of, man." Clearly, that is quite the case.
According to Jones, Michael Jackson stole a lot of his music.
Right off the bat, Marchese asked Jones, “What’s something people don’t understand about [Michael Jackson]?”
Jones said, “I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs … The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come … Greedy, man. Greedy.”

Marchese asked him, “What’s something you wish you didn’t know?”
Jones answered, “Who killed Kennedy.”
Marchese pressed, and Jones revealed who it was: “[Chicago mobster Sam] Giancana. The connection was there between Sinatra and the Mafia and Kennedy. Joe Kennedy — he was a bad man — he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes.”
When Marchese wanted to talk about this theory, Jones simply said, “We shouldn’t talk about this publicly.”

Jones let it slip that he met Paul McCartney when he was 21. Marchese asked him what his first impression of the Beatles was, and Jones said, “That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherf**kers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it.”
He then told a story about how he was in the studio with Ringo, and he couldn’t get this part of a song right, so they told him to take a break and go get some food. While Ringo was out, they called in another drummer to fix the part. When Ringo came back and they played the part back to him he said, “That didn’t sound so bad.”
Jones replied, “Yeah, motherf**ker because it ain’t you.”
“Great guy, though,” he added.
Guys, we are not remotely done yet. Wait ’til he gets to the Trump family.
