Guilty finding on Jackson's doctor a joke, says Quincy

Guilty finding on Jackson's doctor a joke, says Quincy



Two days after Dr Conrad Murray, the personal physician of Michael Jackson, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, the star's record producer and mentor has spoken out against the result.

"It's a joke," said Quincy Jones, 78, Jackson's producer on the hit albums Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad, which together have sold more than 160 million copies.

Speaking in Dubai, Jones said if Murray had not been treating Jackson there would have been another medical practitioner doing exactly the same.

"People of Michael's stature get whatever they want, it just goes with the territory," said the producer, who has earned a record 79 Grammy nominations over five decades. "There were 40 other doctors lined up to do the same thing, whatever it is.

"I don't know why a guy would kill someone who's giving him US$150,000 [Dh551,000] a month."

Jones is in Dubai for tonight's launch of Tomorrow-Bokra, the charity single he has co-produced with the Moroccan-born musician RedOne and in partnership with the Emirati entrepreneur Badr Jafar.

The single, recorded in Morocco, has been billed as the biggest musical collaboration to come out of the Arab world and features the talents of 24 Arab stars from 16 nations.

Tomorrow-Bokra is an Arabic reworking of Jones's Grammy Award-winning hit Tomorrow (A Better You, A Better Me), with Arabic lyrics written by the Lebanese singer Majida El Roumi.

It goes on sale digitally at 11pm tonight, at the same time as the video premieres live on MBC channels and at an event in the One&Only The Palm hotel in Dubai.

Funds raised from sales of Tomorrow-Bokra will be collected by the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture in support of the UN World Food Programme, the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation. They will be used to finance educational programs in music, arts and culture for children from across Middle East and North Africa.

"I've spent much of my life dedicated to humanitarian causes, that's the way I roll," said Jones, adding that he hoped the song would help spread a message of peace across the region. "I've always had the greatest respect and empathy for the indomitable spirit of the people of the Middle East."

He said the project, which was announced in May at the Mawazine Festival Rhythms of the World in Rabat, Morocco, was devised before the Arab Spring. He admitted it was a fantastic coincidence.

"The timing is perfect," Jones said. "It happened almost simultaneously."

The single comes out in physical format on November 22, at the same time as the launch of the compilation album Bokra.

It also arrives shortly after the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation granted membership status to Palestine, a move Jones said he wholeheartedly supported.

"I think it's fantastic. They're being treated like a grown-up," he said.

Jones said his friend Hani Masri, the Palestinian-American businessman with whom he launched the We Are The Future project for children living in areas of conflict, had taken him around the region.

The Palestinian bid for UN recognition as a state was something he said he was watching with keen interest.

"I'm on that case so badly you can't imagine. It concerns the world."

Well if it were another doc that doc would be where Murray is so it doesnt matter, it just happened to be Murray. And he was charged with Involentary Manslaughter, not Planned murder.

he is right, why would a doctor kill when he is getting 150thousand a month. I guess everyone is coming to a conclusion it is a hoax..


I'm happy to be alive, I'm happy to be who I am.

for some reason these remarks from Quincey Jones rubs me wrong.  I never thought of him as a true friend of Michael’s.

Just goes to show how stupid and spiteful Quincy is.

There were other doctors lined up... So what? If one drug dealer is responsible for selling a kid heroin, the kid dies, and Quincy goes: "What a joke. There were 20 more drug dealers involved." Doesn't change the fact that selling drugs is a crime, does it?

And you don't kill someone who's paying you? Well, the prosecution has never alleged that Murray wanted to kill Michael, and the jury has not found him guilty on that.

So, how ridiculous is this?

Agree.

Quicy's words, (if they are indeed true) may indicate that he just based his opinion on rumors, half trues and frankly, having no idea what the case was about. I am not suggesting he is "in the know", contrary I think he knows nothing, yet, he seems arrogant enough to make a strong statement on something he seems not to be  aware of.

....

Soooo agree with that.
 :( Michael attracted/worked with wrong type of people way too often.
Quincy was just a producer, it was just business, so maybe we shouldn't expect any
"love" or "friendship" here, I'm never friends with my work partners, it's just
business.
But what Jones said is wrong, regardless. All people accusing dead victims
are questionable. Yeah, drug dealers are angels and should fly free. Sure.

@ForstAmoon, i agree with you, i guess Quincy just showed fake love during the 1980's so he could get the money and run, michael was too naive he trusted everyone, like a childs heart in an grown mans body. :-\

"You don't kill someone who is paying you $150,000 a month" Murray never got paid anything by AEG since the contract had not been signed by Michael and was only signed by Murray on June 24th. Whether or not Michael intended to sign is now a moot point.

However, one MAY kill someone if they are paid enough by a 3rd party, Mafia do it all the time... One MAY also become involved in a hoax death if they are paid enough money, made enough promises or believe in the cause...

Re: Quincy trying to fill Michael's shoes!

Quincy SHOWS his true colors: he desired to FILL Michael's shoes all along - does anybody else see this, as clearly as I do?

Yo, Quincy - were you so jealous of Michael, you tried something stupid, and thus triggered this HOAX in the first place? All the timing here works for YOU.

Who else here doesn't believe in Coincidences!? Michael was working with that Sheik, before Quincy came along.

Quincy has been the one who hasn't been able to let go of this rage, that comes from the very depths of his soul! This makes me wonder so much about you, Quincy...so very, very much.

Shall we see how many "bodies" or projects, he's stopped, because he couldn't be top-dogg? Promises broken?

 respect/ to you Mr Jones!
People laugh when I explain. And though they may laugh, that doesn't change the fact that it's still the truth.
