Jagger and Richards marked the 60th anniversary of that famous meeting last night (October 17) during their gig at Sophie Stadium in Inglewood, CA.


After the show, the Stones shared an image of a special plectrum featuring the words “17 October 1961-2021 – 60 years on the same train” along with an image of Jagger and Richards.

The Stones are currently on their rescheduled “No Filter” tour of North America, with the band performing “Connection” for the first time in 15 years earlier this month.

Last week, Jagger responded to Paul McCartney’s recent jibe about the Stones while on stage.

Comparing The Beatles and The Stones, McCartney said new yorker: “I’m not sure I should say that, but they’re a blues cover band, like the Stones. I think ours was a little wider than their net.”


Jagger addressed McCartney’s comments on stage in LA, saying: “There are a lot of celebrities here tonight: Megan Fox is here, she’s sweet. Leonardo DiCaprio. Lady Gaga. Kirk Douglas.

“Paul McCartney is here, he’s going to help us — he’s going to join us on a blues cover later.”
