Quincy Jones Rejects Chance For Another ‘Thriller’ With Jackson

Quincy Jones has rejected the opportunity to work with Michael Jackson again, but says he has been in contact with the pop star. Jones, who produced Jackson’s 1982 album Thriller, the best-selling LP of all time, said he has too much on his plate. He told NME.com: “Man please, I’ve got enough to do. We already did that. I have talked to him about working with him again but I’ve got too much to do. I’ve got 900 products, I’m 74 years old. Give me a break.” Jones has worked with the who’s who of music legends including Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson. Now he has revealed new plans that’ll see him work with Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee to create music for the Beijing Olympics. He’s also working on a 3D film about Brazil with Brett Ratner. But that’s not to say he doesn’t want to work with musicians. When asked who he’d like to work with, he said: “Jamie Cullum. I love Jamie, I really do.”
