Mick Jagger believes the Rolling Stones are better than the Beatles. The 76-year-old rocker is responding to Paul McCartney’s statement, who recently claimed that the ‘Hey Jude’ interpreters had a lot ahead of the ‘Paint It Black’ makers.
Although McCartney made it clear that he was a huge Stones fan, he was sure the Beatles were undefeated. In the interview Paul said: “The Stones are a fantastic group, I go every time they perform because they are a great band and Mick really does it, the vocals, the movements and everything … I love the Stones, but the Beatles were better. ”
Here’s the difference
Jagger, however, did not want to be left alone and replied promptly to defend himself and his bandmates Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts.
He told Apple Music: “Of course there is no competition. Paul is gracious. I am a politician. The big difference is that the Rolling Stones are a big concert band, from other decades and other areas. The Beatles have never done an arena tour. They separated before the concert tours really started. The Stones continued. That is the big difference between these two bands. One band is very lucky to play in stadiums and the other band no longer exists. ”(Bang)
