I loved it. Would be fascinating to pick that man’s brain.

honestly it sounds like he is getting high on his own fame. the amount of insane name dropping and outrageous story telling, not to mention bashing the beatles (and i'm not a beatles fan myself) just comes off as holier than thou. talented? yes, but if it weren't for those artists he'd be just another jazz crossover artist who tried their hand at producing. when it comes to the greats i prefer people like Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder who are a lot more gracious and humble than this ego tripping cat.
