Jagger, 78, e McCartney, 79, hanno fatto parte della rivalità di lunga data tra i Beatles e i Rolling Stones. Jagger ha preso in giro McCartney dopo che il musicista ha chiamato i Rolling Stones a “cover band blues” during a recent interview.
“Paul McCartney is here, he’s going to help us — he’s going to join us in a blues cover later,” Jagger quipped during the show at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
Jagger seemed to be referencing McCartney’s comment in the New Yorker.
“I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are,” McCartney ha detto allo sbocco.
The rivalry between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones has been going on for a while, at least since 1987. Quell'anno, Jagger mentioned to the press that he thought the Beatles breaking up was “a very good idea.”
“No one should care if the Rolling Stones have broken up, should they?” Jagger said at the time.
“intendo, when the Beatles broke up I couldn’t give a s–t,” Ha aggiunto. “Thought it was a very good idea.”
Più recentemente, McCartney told Howard Stern that the Beatles “were better” than The Rolling Stones.
