Sometimes you have to make a personnel decision that could turn out wrong, or right, or neither. You have to go by balancing the pros and cons. Only time will tell if it was a smart decision. The "Beatles" made the decision to cut Pete Best and pick up Ringo Starr and it turned out to be right. OTOH, the Portland TrailBlazers decided to pass on Michael Jordan with the #1 pick.

"I remember once we were in the studio with George Martin, and Ringo had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song. 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, motherfucker because it ain’t you.” Great guy, though." - Quincy Mothafuckin' Jones

About Pryor? Brando? The Beatles? He wouldn't know a lie or the truth if it hit him in the head.

Worked out well because Paul McCartney got to play drums on a lot of Beatles tracks.

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

If it wasn't for Quincy Jones, we wouldn't have Rashida Jones, so he gets a pass.

Playoffs are stupid in soccer and I don't care if that hurts your feelings.

I don't like the beatles. I don't understand the obsession with them.

Then you're nearly in the middle

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.
