Celebrating For A Cause, Jones Joins Friends In Multiple Countries By CRAIG ROSEN
On March 14, Quincy Jones celebrates his 80th birthday, but the celebration won't start and stop there.
Rather fittingly, for a man whose travels and musical influence have spanned the globe, Jones' 80th will be celebrated in four different countries in April, July and August.
First, on April 13, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Jones will celebrate his birthday with his "celestial twin," actor Michael Caine. The two were born within minutes of each other on March 14, 1933--Jones in Chicago, Caine in London--and became friends when Jones scored the original version of "The Italian Job," starring Caine, in 1969.
