NFT: The bonkers Quincy Jones interview

DanMetroMan : 2/7/2018 4:54 pm
1. Richard Pryor slept with Marlon Brando (confirmed by Pryor's widow)

2. Michael Jackson stole songs

3. Quincy dated Ivanka Trump

And there is a more where that came from!

One of the craziest interviews I've ever read...

LMFAO!!! That was the greatest interview I've ever read.
I shared this interview on my FB page

One of the wildest... most forthcoming interviews I think I've ever read. With him being so old though, I wonder how much of it is true?
What a trip.

really incredible. He name drops/discusses like 75% of pop culture "history" of the last 40 or so years. No filter at all.

Richard Pryor's widow has confirmed the claims Quincy made about Pryor and Marlon Brando
Quote:
Richard Pryor had a lot of sex in the '70s -- and it was with both men and women -- including Marlon Brando ... according to Pryor's widow, Jennifer

It would be like James gandolfini plowing Dave chappelle. I canít even fathom. I texted my dad the news and he is in disbelief, literally not buying it thinks Quincey lost his mind.

I'd argue more "nuts" than that. Pryor isn't my favorite stand-up (I actually prefer his movies) but if polled I think he'd be considered the most influential stand-up of all time among the top comedians of all time, Brando very much the same thing. It would be akin to Eddie Murphy and Tom Hanks. As for it being "true", Pryor and Brando were both known to be bisexual so it's not exactly mind blowing once you realize this fact.
That was a great interview

Not pulling any punches and does not give a shit what people think.

Classic
Iím glad we get to hear it just like all of you  
LatHarv83 : 2/8/2018 10:13 am : link
Because everyone is naturally curious on some level whether they admit it or not...But some of these things are just downright wrong for him to be airing out there. Feels weird to almost applaud him for it. And a lot of this is about dead people. Is he gonna shit on Michael Jackson like that if heís alive? Heís been talking spicey about him since his death. Does he reveal this prior Brando stuff if theyíre alive? Probably not

Seems like a snake and a coward to me
Was great to finally find out who killed JFK! lol

I have a theory -- Jone's Ex Wife- Peggy Lipton was briefly linked with Paul McCartney before Jones started to go out with her.

There is a rumored story that McCartney was in LA and was going to hook up with Peggy Lipton but then Linda Eastman (Pauls' future wife) came out to LA . So McCartney ignored Peggy Lipton - leaving her outside his hotel trying to figure out what the hell happened .

By the way Rashida Jones is daughter of Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton

Apparently he didn't even hide it. What's funny is my friends mom used to claim she knew a guy who slept with Pryor and we both sort of laughed it off. Now I believe it lol

As they said on the radio this morning, when Pryor was joking about sucking dick and fucking dudes... he wasn't actually joking.
This part not getting enough attention, IMHO

Heís clearly not joking even though heís trying to be funny. The vibe is awkward with those gathered around him
Really interesting interview

McCartney's bass playing is pretty polarizing. I honestly think a lot of it is because he tended to favor relatively unorthodox instruments and tone for the overall style he played. He basically played the James Jamerson style his critics would approve of, but on basses like Rickenbackers that they'd scoff at. And with a pick too.
