Southampton unlikely to sign Quincy Promes

  Southampton unlikely to sign Quincy Promes According to Simon Peach, Southampton are unlikely to sign Spartak Moscow’s Quincy Promes unless something drastic is to happen this deadline day. Twitter: It appears Quincy Promes will not be arriving at #SaintsFC on #deadlineday unless something drastically changes (@SimonPeach) Southampton have struggled this season and are in desperate need for a fresh attacking ideas as they look to secure their Premier League status for next season. They currently sit in the relegation zone ahead of their game at home against Brighton tonight and they need to add to their signing of Guido Carrillo, who could make his Premier League debut tonight, if they want to switch it up at the top of the pitch. The asking price from Spartak Moscow was met after a first bid was rejected for Promes, but the Russian club are now reluctant to sell the Netherlands starlet unless they can sign a replacement before the deadline, which is looking impossible. Southampton will have no problem paying the price for Promes, as they look to spend the £75m which they received from Liverpool at the beginning of the window for Promes’ fellow countryman, Virgil van Dijk, but Moscow are reluctant to sell. Saints will look to secure a deal for Promes in the summer if they can’t get one over the line today.

Quincy still recalls the first time he heard the band, telling the outlet, "They were the worst musicians in the world.

"They were no-playing motherf**kers. Paul (McCartney) was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo (Starr)? Don’t even talk about it."

The drummer was singled out for further attack as Jones remembered working with Ringo on his 1970 solo album Sentimental Journey.

In a recent interview with Vulture, the iconic producer and musician Quincy Jones unearthed his personal opinions on modern pop music , as well as throwing it back to where it all began with – The Beatles . Now Quincy Jones is responsible for some of modern music ’s greatest triumphs and

Quincy Jones is a legendary producer, that’s for sure. But there’s one group he didn’t rate - not for their musicianship , anyway. In fact, Q - as he is known in the industry - thinks The Beatles were rubbish.

Quincy reveals he duped Starr into thinking he'd recorded the drum track on Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing - because the rocker was really struggling in the studio.

"We were in the studio with (Beatles producer) George Martin and Ringo had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song," Quincy tells Vulture. "He couldn’t get it. We said, 'Mate, why don’t you get some lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie and take an hour and a half and relax a little bit?' So he did, and we called Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer.

"Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes back and says, 'George, can you play it back for me one more time?' So George did, and Ringo says, 'That didn’t sound so bad'. And I said, 'Yeah, motherf**ker, because it ain’t you'."

Still, Jones likes Ringo as a person, calling him a "great guy", and he loves hanging out with U2 star Bono, adding, "He’s doing good work all over the world. Working with him and (Live Aid genius) Bob Geldof on debt relief was one of the greatest things I ever did."

Jackson family outraged after Quincy Jones calls Michael Jackson a thief .
Quincy Jones accused Michael Jackson of stealing music, and his family is livid."Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs. [Donna Summer's] 'State of Independence' and 'Billie Jean.' The notes don't lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come. ... Greedy, man. Greedy," Quincy said during an interview with Vulture.com.
