Quincy Jones remembers Michael Jackson
Quincy Jones, founder of VIBE and the iconic producer of Michael Jackson’s 1978’s Off The Wall (Epic), 1982’s Thriller (Epic) and 1986’s Bad (Epic), has made a statement on the singer’s passing.
Said Jones, “I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news. For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words. Divinity brought our souls together on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout the 80’s. To this day, the music we created together on “Off The Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” is played in every corner of the world and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace, professionalism and dedication. He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”
