Veteran producer Quincy Jones has issued a public apology for recent interview comments in which he slammed a number of artists, including the Beatles.
Speaking to Vulture, he’d called the British band “the worst musicians in the world” and “no-playing motherxxxers,” adding that “Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it.” He also criticized U2’s recent albums and put down Michael Jackson and actor Marlon Brando.
Jones said his children had staged a “family intervention” after his interviews. “Let me tell you, I am so grateful for my daughters because they are not afraid to stand up to their daddy,” he tweeted. “I am an imperfect human and I’m not afraid to say it. I’m sorry and I’m not afraid to say it.”
