Paul McCartney Disses The Rolling Stones Big Time!


There’s always been a debate about which band was better The Beatles or The Rolling Stones, and it seems like Paul McCartney just chimed in with a bit of a diss of Mick Jagger and the gang.  “I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are,” Sir Paul said in an interview with “The New Yorker.” “I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.” Mick Jagger heard that and decided to comment. Here's what he had to say  “That’s so funny. He’s a sweetheart. There’s obviously no competition, The big difference, though, is and sort of slightly seriously, is that The Rolling Stones is a big concert band in other decades and other areas when The Beatles never even did an arena tour, Madison Square Garden with a decent sound system. They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real. So that business started in 1969 and the Beatles never experienced that," he continued. "They did a great gig, and I was there, at Shea stadium. They did that stadium gig. But the Stones went on, we started doing stadium gigs in the ’70s and [are] still doing them now. That’s the real big difference between these two bands. One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn’t exist.” He does have a point. I don't think there's any reason to compare the two. They're both great bands in their own right in different ways.
