Quincy Jones

Quincy Jones joined The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast to promote his new documentary, Quincy, on Netflix. On the podcast, Jones revealed that Ray Charles had got him hooked on heroin for five months when he was just 15-years-old.
“When they finished playing they’d go over in the corner and they had it on their thumb. I just snuck in the line and got me a little hit.”
Jones says they would buy heroin from a Harlem dealer named Detroit Red a.k.a, Malcolm X. Jones finally got clean after taking a fall down some stars that put him on bed rest.
