    I know........maybe for this interview he was off his meds that day. Trashing people who are no longer here to defend themselves is vile.

    I often appreciate candid behavior for various reasons.. But something should be said for the honor that sometimes comes with the unsaid.. I get Michael was not an angel, and as I have gotten older I have enjoyed seeing/appreciating the human side of Michael more and more.. good and bad!

    I am not one to hate quincy like some here, but guy.. There is a code of ethics that comes with candid speaking! I appreciate a view point when it comes from an honest perspective.. even if bad - but when you care for someone's legacy.. One that you are apart of.. speak of it with respect

    I see your point.....however there hasn't been any respect towards MJ by Quincy since 2009. Also he is two-faced; he can blab about his dead friend's sexuality and throw them under the bus, but yet he can't speak on Cosby "in public". Whatever.

    I completely agree. Did you read what he said about Marlon Brando?! My goodness. Regardless of whether or not there is truth to it, he's not here to defend his dignity!

    I never liked Quincy. He acts like they did 3 great albums together than Michael started to decline. Which is not the case.

    For sure, but I feel like the media helped perpetuate that narrative unfortunately. I also think that in later years, Quincy started having this odd superiority complex over Michael because of how much attention/credit he was getting for his work. He somehow feels that because he was more experienced and classically trained that Michael was just a little kid in the studio doing what he was told. Yet every other musician or engineer that has worked with him, including Bruce Swedien, says otherwise.

    I wish somebody who worked on 'Off the Wall' or 'Thriller' would stand up and say something. He wasn't even singling out that particular song he called Michael "greedy" and said he "stole alot of songs!" I can't believe what he's saying to the media. Michael Jackson of all people..greedy? Smh. If anything Michael was not careful enough about his assets and his wealth. He donated millions of dollars to charity and always acknowledged the people he worked with. We have so many stories of artists young and old praising Michael for how gracious and humble he was. And how he was always thankful, appreciative, and encouraging of other people's work. And even if Quincy (who was the producer on BOTH songs that he's alleging Michael stole from) felt that there was some similarity in the riff, that doesn't give him the right to judge Michael' s entire musical catalog and say that "he stole lots songs!" That's just downright ludicrous and very disrespectful.

    It's funny when you look back at the 80s Quincy interviews and he has nothing but positive things to say. Fast forward to today, when Mj can't defend himself he starts telling these lies. I think old age, bitterness $$, and jealousy is what we are seeing here..

    To be honest, I agree with Quincy. Quincy is a little nuts, but he's right. But every musician borrows random ideas now and then - I do it myself - and Michael Jackson was addicted to plastic surgery. And it was drugs that killed him...no matter who administered it, the drugs killed Michael Jackson.

    The worst thing he said in this interview was that Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles were talentless. And how Quincy kept on going on about how he can make a hit in his sleep. Maybe there is a reason why people don't hire him anymore to produce their records...he doesn't know what a hit is anymore. Dude's full of himself.

    At least he didn't bring up the allegations. Quincy stepped around that, and I'm happy with that. And he never said Michael wasn't talented...he just said he wasn't completely original (and no musician, I don't care who it is, is...it's impossible to not repeat something someone else has done sometimes.)
