Jones, who has been married three times, is very vocal about his love life. Below, check out 10 choice excerpts from the interviews.

That's just one of the wild details to surface in an epic Vulture interview with the music legend. If this is what being old and wise feels like, I'm looking forward to it.

"I was with Tommy Dorsey when [Elvis] Presley showed up at 17 years old".

"The best example of me trying to feed the musical principles of the past - I'm talking about bebop - is 'Baby Be Mine, '" he said.

"Yeah! Yeah, motherfucker couldn't sing". It was around this time that Ivanka was rumored to be going on dates with Lance Armstrong.

The producer voiced sympathy over Jackson's personal issues, saying he had raised concern to the singer over his plastic surgery and blamed abuse by the singer's father for the King of Pop's poor self-image.

Ivanka Trump in Washington, DC on June 27, 2017. "He couldn't get it", Jones recalls. "The South has always been fucked up, but you know where you stand", he says.

GQ: Michael told you that?

Michael Jackson supposedly stole a bunch of his music and wouldn't pay people who worked on his songs. People were understandably shook. "He stole a lot of songs", Jones told Vulture.

"The notes don't lie, man. He was as Machavellian as they come", he said.

'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough - Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section.

T-Pain hit Twitter to explain that he was already reluctant to do a re-make of a Michael Jackson song because he felt like he wouldn't be able to do it justice. You know, I'd see him try to fight - he couldn't fight worth a s**t.

QJ: [Chicago mobster Sam] "Giancana". The late President's family had ties with Frank Sinatra, the Chicago Mafia, and Joe Kennedy.

DM: "I've heard this theory before, that the mob helped win IL for Kennedy in 1960".

He also talked about his longtime friends, the Clintons, and nearly revealed some of the potentials that the former U.S. Secretary of State and former Democratic Party Presidential candidate might have hidden from the public. "Rock ain't nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues, motherfucker", he says. In a new interview with New York Magazine, he discussed his first impressions of the Beatles in unsparing terms. He is said The Beatles is trash, "the worst musicians in the world" to be exact. They were no-playing motherf--rs. Paul was the worst bass player I have ever heard. He couldn't get it.

And then there's this: Jones says Marlon Brando's sexual conquests included some famous men.

While Starr was gone, Jones said he called up jazz drummer Ronnie Verrell to master the bit in 15 minutes - and when Starr heard it, he was impressed.

Vulture: What's stirred everything up?

Said Jones, "It's Trump and uneducated rednecks".
