Los Angeles: A strange revelation has been made by Rapper Dr. Dre and his Beats Electronics’ business partner Jimmy Iovine regarding their being in the industry. The duo has said that the chance to meet new women is what first attracted them to become record producers.
Iovine made the confession to the late legendary singer John Lennon in 1974, recalling, “I was in the studio with John Lennon and we were doing ‘Walls and Bridges’. When you’re in there six weeks in a row, every day, with somebody, you start to forget things to talk about. So John looks at me and he goes, ‘James’ — he used to call me James – ‘why did you get into this?’.”
“I said, ‘Well, you know, erm…’ I’m thinking, ‘I gotta answer right, it’s John Lennon, right? So I say, ‘You know, I saw you guys on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’, I saw the Rolling Stones, I bought a guitar, I started a band, and this is the best I can do’,” he added.
Iovine, 65, added: “For everybody. Everybody’s in it to meet somebody that you connect with, right? You don’t have to put it as bluntly as wanting to get laid.
“I just wanted to get out of my neighbourhood, man. I was headed down the docks. And I didn’t want to do that.”
