Quincy Jones Claims Ray Charles Got Him Addicted to Heroin at 15

Quincy Jones made headlines recently when he did a rare interview with Vulture and spilled all the tea. Jones was busy again on Wednesday when he sat down with Scott Feinberg for the most recent episode of the Awards Chatter podcast. In a wide-ranging interview, the legendary musician, composer, and producer revealed that Ray Charles got him hooked on heroin when he was 15.Jones, who was there to talk about his upcoming biopic, Quincy, said that he met Charles in Seattle when they were teenagers. Noting that drug use "goes with bebop," Jones explained how he first encountered heroin."He got me hooked for five months at 15," he said before laying out a typical night for Seattle's soon-to-be superstar musicians. "After we finished at the Washington Social Club and a couple of other ones, we'd all go down to Jackson Street to the Elks Club. That's where all the bebop jam sessions were. Nobody got paid. We didn't give a damn.""When they finished playing they'd go over in the corner and they had it on their thumb," he continued. "I just snuck in the line and got me a little hit."Jones included that when the band he played with made trips to New York, they purchased their heroin from a Harlem hustler named Detroit Red, also called Malcolm X.While returning home one evening, he fell down five flights of stairs. Quincy Jones lost the urge to use while he was recovering and the time spent laid up kept him away from some of jazz's most notorious drug abusers."The mistakes are what help you grow and learn," he said. [If I hadn't fallen.] I would have been in New York, where I was hanging out with Charlie Parker. I would have been a junkie forever. Bird was always high. Thank god we did it and got it over with

IRVINE, CA - Famous Dex literally shut a show down with his performance at UC Irvine's Shocktoberfest.The Rich Forever artist jumped into the crowd during his set at the university's annual event on Friday (October 19), prompting fans to rush the stage en masse. The pandemonium led to officials canceling the remainder of the concert, which was scheduled to be headlined by YG."We had to make the decision to shut down the show due to numerous safety hazards," Dilraj Toor, UC Irvine's Student Services Vice President, said in a statement on Facebook. "Our midliner, Famous Dex, presented us with challenges that escalated out of our control. We do the best we can to prepare for situations such as this, but with students rushing the floor and creating a dangerous environment, we had no other option."The main goal of ours is, yes, to ensure students have fun, but that does not outweigh the safety of the students. That is, and will always be, the highest of our concerns, and when we felt the safety was compromised last night, we had to end the show.
