Quincy Jones: THE Interview

This is the most 'wow' interview I've seen in more than a minute. Quincy talks incredibly candidly, frankly and fondly about Michael.

Here's an excerpt but check the full thing HERE.

Q: But it must've been so disturbing to see Michael's face turn into what it turned into.
A: It's ridiculous, man! Chemical peels and all of it. And I don't understand it. But he obviously didn't want to be black.

Q: Is that what it was?
A: Well, what do you think? You see his kids?

Q: Did you ever discuss it? Did you ever ask, "Michael, don't you want to be a black man?"
A: No, no, no, please. That's not the way you do it.

Fantastic interview, Qunicy Jones just laid it right down the line. We all know that he had nothing but Michael's best interests at heart and had no reason to lie. Funny, I keep forgetting that Quincy came from such a rough neighbourhood, you would never guess from the way he behaves. He always seems so positive.
