Paul McCartney is on the cover of GQ and inside he addresses the story that will outlive us all: not Beatles lore, but Vulture’s instant-classic Quincy Jones interview. In it, Jones bad-mouthed the Beatles with no hesitation, calling them “no-playing motherfuckers” who were “the worst musicians in the world,” and McCartney “the worst bass player I ever heard.” According to McCartney, Jones claims he never said any of it. (Jones has also previously publicly apologized for his unfiltered quotes.) After the interview set the internet aflame, McCartney remembers thinking, he’s totally out of his tree, then says Jones called him to clear the air and issue his denial:

Regardless of Quincy’s thoughts, McCartney harbors no hard feelings: “The joke is, I love Quincy, even after this. He’s a crazy motherfucker. But I respect him, he’s done a lot of very good things.” He also adds that, given Quincy’s age (85), it’s probably best to take his memory and opinions with a fat grain of salt. “He’s an old guy. I don’t know what it was,” he says. “But I don’t think I’m the worst bass player he’s ever heard. Or maybe he’s never heard bad bass players.”
