LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 18: (L-R) Inductee Quincy Jones and singer Usher speak onstage at the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on April 18, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
It's hard for a guy like myself -- with no money or access to MTV -- to get credit ... It's all about your name being attached to the song so people contact you. Everyone knows that Quincy Jones worked with Michael Jackson, that's why they want to work with him.
I really think that’s the worst thing for albums ever ... If you look before the ‘90s, you might not find many—if any—albums with multiple producers. It just didn’t exist in the history of music. That would have been like Michael Jackson telling Quincy Jones, ‘Look man, I know we did well on Off The Wall, but I’m hot now, and I need to see some other producers for Thriller.’ It just doesn’t make sense.More quotes »
