Ex-Paul McCartney makes fun of The Beatles' Rolling Stones

Ex-Paul McCartney makes fun of The Beatles’ Rolling Stones

He knew he was launching a debate: In a new interview with The New Yorker, former Beatle Paul McCartney (79) once again fueled his alleged rivalry with the Rolling Stones. Since both teams conquered the world from England at a similar time, their fans argue to this day who is actually better. “I’m not sure if I should say it, but they are the blues band. That’s actually what the Stones are,” joked McCartney. “I think we expanded our network a little bit wider than you did,” he adds, referring to the musical influences and the bands’ accomplishments.

In fact, the Rolling Stones have always remained true to their blues roots. Her latest album “Blue and Lonesome,” for example, is a collection of covered blues classics. The live songs of legends like Chuck Berry (1926-2017) or Muddy Waters (1913-1983) can often be found on their playlists. On the other hand, the Beatles relied on albums like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club, or “Yellow Submarine,” set standards in musical innovation – but was also much less active than the Stones.
