Vibe Founder Quincy Jones Wants To Revive Mag

quincyj.jpgYesterday came the sad news that hip hop music magazine Vibe was closing down — just shy of its sixteenth birthday. But today EbonyJet.com has an exclusive interview with Vibe founder Quincy Jones, who revealed that he wants to resuscitate the mag as a Web publication.

“I’m trying to buy my magazine back now,” Jones told the site. “They just messed my magazine all up, but I’m gonna get it back. You better believe it, I’m'a take it online because print and all that stuff is over.”

It’s been a tough week for Jones, who founded Vibe in 1993. In addition to the death of the magazine he founded, he also had to say goodbye to his close friend Michael Jackson. Jones was instrumental in launching the King of Pop’s solo career and he has told a few news organizations that he is not planning on attending the funeral later this week.
