Paul McCartney responds to Quincy Jones calling him ‘the worst bass player I ever heard’

Paul McCartney responds to Quincy Jones calling him ‘the worst bass player I ever heard’

“He’s a crazy motherfucker” Paul McCartney has revealed how Quincy Jones rang him to apologise, after he described the Beatles icon as “the worst bass player I ever heard.”

The controversial comments by the legendary producer came in the same career-spanning interview that saw Jones describe the Beatles as “no-playing motherfuckers” who were “the worst musicians in the world”. Speaking to GQ, McCartney revealed how Jones rang him to apologise – and claimed that he had never made the comments in the first place. “He rang me, and I’m at home on my own,” said McCartney. “And I’d finished work, so I had a drink, and now I’m grooving at home, I’m cooking, I’ve got a little bit of wine going, I’m in a good mood, and I don’t give a shit. So I get a phone call: ‘Is this Mr. McCartney?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Quincy would like to speak with you.’” “Because he’s always worked through security guys. I said, ‘Hey, Quince!’ ‘Paul, how you doing, man?’ ‘I’m doing great—how are you, you motherfucker!’ I’m just living with him. ‘Paul, I didn’t really say that thing—I don’t know what happened, man. I never said that. You know I love you guys!’” Paul McCartney Sir Paul continued: “I said, ‘If you had said that, you know what I would have said? Fuck you, Quincy Jones!’” “And he laughed. I said, ‘You know I would say to that: Fuck you, Quincy Jones, you fucking crazy motherfucker!’ So actually we just had a laugh. And he was like, ‘Oh, Paul, you know I love you so much.’ ‘Yeah, I know you do, Quince’”.

Although Jones denied making the comments to Vulture, he later issued an apology after receiving a dressing down from his six daughters. “I love Quincy, even after this. He’s a crazy motherfucker”, McCartney added. “But I respect him, he’s done a lot of very good things.” He added: “He’s an old guy. I don’t know what it was. But I don’t think I’m the worst bass player he’s ever heard. Or maybe he’s never heard bad bass players.” Yesterday, McCartney revealed how John Lennon once unsuccessfully attempted to convince him to drill a hole in his skull.

McCartney also discussed group masturbation sessions that he and Lennon took part in and whether the rest of the Beatles had watched George Harrison lose his virginity. His new album ‘Egypt Station‘ is out now.

Sir Paul McCartney on Beatles’ sex lives: Closest I got to an orgy was wonderful experience with two hookers

Sir Paul McCartney on Beatles’ sex lives: Closest I got to an orgy was wonderful experience with two hookers

Sir Paul McCartney has said he was never into orgies – but he did once have a “wonderful experience” with two hookers in Las Vegas. The rock legend, 76, was responding to late bandmate John Lennon’s claim that The Beatles regularly held group romps during their tours. He said: “There weren’t really orgies, to my knowledge. There were sexual encounters of the celestial kind and there were groupies. I’m just not into orgies. I don’t want anyone else there. It ruins it!”

But speaking to GQ, he told of a menage a trois he had when the group toured the US – and how he believes John, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were up to similar things in adjoining hotel rooms. Sir Paul McCartney has been setting the record straight about the Beatles’ sex lives. Sir Paul said: “There was once when we were in Vegas where the tour guy, a fixer, said, ‘You’re going to Vegas, guys—you want a hooker?’. We were all, ‘Yeah!’. And I requested two. “And I had them and it was a wonderful experience. But that’s the closest I ever came to an orgy. “See, the thing is, in the next room I think the guys might have ordered something else off the menu. So that would figure if John was saying, yeah, it was all bacchanalian.

Macca says he wasn’t interested in orgies. “I think John was a little more that way, because thinking back, I remember there was someone in a club that he’d met, and they’d gone back to the house because the wife fancied John, wanted to have sex with him. “So that happened and John discovered the husband was watching. That was called ‘kinky’ in those days. So I think maybe John experienced a bit more of that than I did. “I just didn’t fancy it, that kind of thing. Someone else’s wife? I definitely wouldn’t want the husband to know. You know, that seems sensible to me.” Read More The Beatles had groupies queueing up to sleep with them

Sir Paul, who wed third wife Nancy Shevell in 2011, believes he and John would have a good relationship now if he were still alive, adding that it “would have just got better and better as we matured”. He said: “I think John would have loosened up a hell of a lot.” Sir Paul recently used Auto-Tune on his vocals for a track and said he reckons John, who was shot dead by crazed fan Mark Chapman in 1980, would have enjoyed experimenting with the device. He said: “If we’d had this in the Beatles, we’d have been – John, particularly – would be so all over it. All his freaking records would be… You can’t be so straitlaced to not expose yourself to experiences in life.” Sir Paul also claims the National Trust made him pay an entrance fee to visit his childhood home when he filmed a Carpool Karaoke skit there with James Corden.

 

Last moments of hero dad who gave up his life to save wife in Westminster attack

American tourist Kurt Cochran, 54, has been hailed a hero after it emerged he died trying to save his wife Melissa by pushing her out of the way as Khalid Masood came racing towards them. In ’82 seconds of terrible drama’ the Westminster terrorist mowed down victims like ‘human bowling pins’ the inquest heard yesterday.

On the first day of an inquest into the victims of last year’s Westminster terror attack, Chief Coroner Judge Mark Lucraft described how “the lives of many were torn apart by 82 seconds of high and terrible drama”.

Before the knife attack on PC Palmer, Masood had driven into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing Mr Cochran, retired window cleaner Leslie Rhodes, 75, Aysha Frade, 44, and Romanian tourist Andreea Cristea, 31.

PC Palmer’s sister Angela said: “He was always brave and took his role as a police officer seriously. He treated everyone with respect.”

“Keith died protecting strangers whilst doing his job and he will be remembered by many for his courage and bravery.”

She said the family was “completely devastated” and would also remember him as a caring and loving father, husband, son, uncle and friend.

Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin Are Reportedly Moving To Canada For This Reason

Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin Are Reportedly Moving To Canada For This Reason

It looks like Justin Bieber is officially done with the United States after it’s been reported that he and Hailey Baldwin are moving to Canada in an effort to live out their lives in relative peace. The singer has clearly had his ups and downs in Los Angeles over the years and is keen to start afresh in the location where he feels most at home: “He wants to make his full-time home in Canada,” a source told Us Weekly. “He needs to get out of the L.A., NYC scene.”

A significant reason behind the move is the fact that the paparazzi just won’t leave him and his fiancée alone, with an insider explaining that he finds the attention “overwhelming” and doesn’t want to put up with it for longer than necessary.  The pair are said to have purchased a $5 million mansion in Ontario and it sounds just as extravagant as we’d imagined. Along with a temperature controlled wine room, the property also boasts an equestrian facility and even a private lake. Casual. Getty This comes amid reports that the couple are planning to get hitched “really soon.” They’ve apparently hit a minor glitch with a wedding venue being unavailable on their chosen date but have since managed to find something more suitable. As for why it might take them a little longer than first anticipated to get everything in order, a separate insider said: “They want to make sure their day is perfect and exactly what they want.” Well, money talks.

Britain’s poshest Oxfam charity shop where Royal Family donate clothes BURGLED for designer gear

Britain’s poshest Oxfam charity shop where Royal Family donate clothes BURGLED for designer gear

A burglar is believed to have targeted an Oxfam charity shop for its designer gear in the UK’s richest borough of Kensington and Chelsea – close to the homes of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. It emerged today that the thief apparently managed to escape on August 7 with around £300 worth of gear – in a store which has been known to stock expensive items by signature brands such as Gucci and Jimmy Choo.

Members of the royal family are understood to have donated unwanted items to the shop on Gloucester Road in the past – but there is no indication that anything they might have given in the past was taken. The thief apparently managed to gain access to the premises with little effort after picking up a set of keys left with the coffee shop opposite. He is said to have claimed to them he was an Oxfam volunteer who had come to collect the keys. Read More Read More He reportedly let himself into the shop on Gloucester Road an hour before it opened at 10am before loading the stolen goods onto a van parked outside. A source cited by The Sun said: “There is so much money around here that people would take in Gucci clothes. “Royals like Princess Michael of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester have even apparently donated items. “Everyone locally knows they leave the key nearby as they have so many volunteers in on different days “But this is a scandalous way for Oxfam to treat their security,” the source said. The shop is near Kensington Palace, home to Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle

An Oxfam statement said: “A small number of items were stolen from the Gloucester Road shop in a burglary last month. “These donations could have helped raise money for Oxfam’s life-changing work fighting poverty around the world. We are working with the police in their investigation.” Police said no arrests have been made and have asked for anyone with information to contact police on 101.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoy SECRET Italian getaway with George and Amal Clooney

Local police were drafted in to make sure the royal couple were left undisturbed on their visit to the idyllic retreat on Lake Como, in Italy.  Clooney and human rights barrister wife Amal, 40, were among the stars at the couple’s May wedding at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.  They joined the royal couple at their villa with 10-month-old twins Alexander and Ella.

Reports say Meghan enjoyed her time lazing by the swimming pool, and helping with nanny duties for the adorable twins, while Harry and George spent their time playing basketball with other friends. Around 15 guests are said to have attended the luxurious party – which went on until the early hours.

Rumours abound that Meghan will fly home to Toronto without Prince Harry to meet up with mum Doria Ragland.  Former Suits actress Meghan, 37, lived in Toronto before moving in with Harry and still has close friends living in the city. Kensington Palace sent a letter to Air Canada staff “asking that no one take Meghan’s picture or approach her on the flight”, reports Royal Central.

Meghan is also rumoured to be flying to Los Angeles in the coming weeks before returning to London for work in September.
