That thread has really got their knickers in a twist. Someone needs to start a thread soon “Donna Summer, Quincy Jones’s greatest produced album - appreciation thread”. Pit the gays against the Beatards and watch as the whole place finally implodes for good.

The Beatles were NEVER a boy band. They were a band who got to together in the traditional way ROCK bands get together, they loved rock n roll, started playing guitar, lived in relatively the same area, and eventually got together by being friends or meeting through friends. They worked their butts off for 5 years playing at everything from family gatherings to dive bars during that time before they were finally taken under the wing of a manager who could actually get them a record deal. They pushed very hard to get as many of their own songs on their albums and as their first single(unlike boybands whose songs are usually written for them). They had male and female fans but once they got the record deal it just so happens a lot of teen girls fell in love with them.
I don't think people know what a boy band is. The Beatles were a rock band. Sure they were cleaned up for mass consumption but not a boy band. The Monkees were the prototypical boy band
The prototypical boyband is fabricated by a record company or manager for the specific purpose of attracting girl fans. The Beatles were NOT. Girls just happened to like them because they had great music, great personalities and were goodlooking too.
Lest we forget, Quincy Jones produced THE BEST SELLING ALBUM IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC. It's sold more copies than Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road, and 1 combined.
If you're accusing him of being jealous or incompetent, you've already lost.

It doesn't take away from the fact that it is shallow, derivative, teeny-bop pop, which is ironic, considering his condescending, elitist attitude towards other music and musicians. There was nothing innovative about his production, as evidenced by the fact that he copied the production of a Hall and Oates record. He doesn't seem particularly bright, so I imagine he is befuddled by anything that is even slightly cerebral. He never had the ability to be a singer/performer, so I am sure that is where the jealousy stems from.
Stop someone on the street and ask them the hum a Quincy Jones song!
