Legendary music producer Quincy Jones dished on what he really thinks of some of
his most famous collaborators, from The Beatles to Michael Jackson.

Though they’re widely regarded as one of the greatest bands to ever play, Jones’
first impression of The Beatles was hardly complimentary.
In fact, his initial reaction to the mop-top Liverpudlians was that
"they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing mother—–rs."

He took particular issue with Paul McCartney’s bass-playing skills ("Paul was
the worst bass player I ever heard") and Ringo’s drumming ("Don’t even talk about it").

Jones recalled a particular studio session in 1970 in which he was working on a
version of "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing" for Starr’s debut studio album.

The producer said Starr was trying ? and failing ? for hours to master
"a four-bar thing" and couldn’t perfect it, so Jones suggested he "get some
lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie" and take a time out.
While Starr was gone, Jones said he called up jazz drummer Ronnie Verrell to
master the bit in 15 minutes ? and when Starr heard it, he was impressed.
"I said, ‘Yeah, mother—–r because it ain’t you,’" Jones recalled.
