Quincy Jones talks music, legacy and piracy…

30 May

The Trichordist

Quincy Jones is a living legend. We find it interesting that despite the common insights of some of the most respected artists, songwriters, performers and producers there are still those who claim musicians are better off in the post-internet world, and that piracy has not negatively effected them. Quincy disagrees, and rightfully so.

Q: How have you adapted over the years to the way the industry has changed?

A: The industry doesn’t change your production – you still do what you believe in. What’s sad is that there is 98 percent music piracy everywhere on the planet. It’s just terrible.

What if these kids (who download music illegally) worked for me for two months and then I said, “I’m not going to pay you.” That’s just not right.
