during an interview with new yorker Earlier this month, McCartney said: “[The Beatles’] The net was cast slightly wider than [the Stones’]. I’m not sure I should say this, but they are a blues cover band, much like the Stones. “

Last Thursday (October 14) at a concert in Los Angeles, Jagger took a brief swipe at McCartney’s comments.

During the show, Jagger said, “There are a lot of celebrities here tonight.” “Megan Fox is here, she’s cute. 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.”

McCartney made similar remarks about the Stones during a conversation with radio host Howard Stern on SiriusXM last year.

“They’re rooted in the blues. When they’re writing stuff, it’s related to the blues. We had a bit more of an influence. … There’s a lot of differences, and I like the Stones, but I’m with you. The Beatles were better.”

Jagger responded by mocking those comments at the time, stating that “there is clearly no competition between the two bands”.

“One band is incredibly fortunate still playing in stadiums, and then the other band doesn’t exist,” he said.

Recently, Jagger and bandmate Keith Richards discussed why the Rolling Stones have removed ‘Brown Sugar’ from their current US tour setlist, after being asked if this was related to its opening line: “Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields

“I’m with the sisters trying to find out where the beef is. Didn’t they understand it was a song about the horrors of slavery? But they’re trying to bury it,” Richards told Los Angeles Times.

“At the moment I don’t want to get into conflict with all this crap. But I do hope that somewhere along the track we’ll be able to resurrect this baby girl in all her glory.”
