Jones' Tears During Jackson Tribute

QUINCY JONES broke down in tears at a gig in London on Saturday (27Jun09) - when BLACK EYED PEAS star WILL.I.AM paid an emotional tribute to MICHAEL JACKSON.
The legendary music producer, who was behind the King Of Pop's biggest hit albums, Thriller, Off The Wall and BAD, is still grieving following the untimely death of the star from a cardiac arrest.
Following Jackson's passing on Thursday (25Jun09), Jones said, "I've lost my little brother today and part of my soul has gone with him."
And he was moved to tears when hip-hop pal played a medley of Jackson hits, including 1983's Wanna Be Starting Something, during a DJ set in the U.K. at the weekend.
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "He had his head in his hands and was batting away people trying to give him words of support. He asked to be taken to the dressing room because he needed time to himself."
