PAUL MCCARTNEY CLAIMS THE ROLLING STONES WERE A "BLUES COVER BAND" IN A NEW INTERVIEW

 

 
Speaking to The New Yorker , Paul said: 'I'm not sure I should say it, but they're a blues cover band, that's sort of what the Stones are' 

Last year,  Paul told Howard Stern he felt the Beatles were the better band.
Mick Jagger responded there was 'obviously no competition' between the groups, while comparing their dynamics in terms of touring.
The Beatles split in 1970 after a decade together, while The Rolling Stones have continued to tour since their formation in the 1960s.
The Rolling Stones are currently on their No Filter tour, following the death of drummed Charlie Watts in August.
 
Paul said he felt that his band's net was 'cast a bit wider' than the iconic rock group.

Speaking to The New Yorker, Paul said: 'I'm not sure I should say it, but they're a blues cover band, that's sort of what the Stones are. I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.'
 
In the chat with The New Yorker, Paul also spoke about how the Beatles began to become weary of touring by 1966, and the group eventually split in 1970.
'It had been sort of brewing, you know, this distaste for schlepping around and playing in the rain with the danger of electricity killing you,' he said.

'You kind of just look at yourself and go, 'Wait a minute, I'm a musician, you know. I'm not a rag doll for children to scream at.''
Paul had previously told Howard Stern in April 2020 that he believed The Beatles were an overall better group than The Rolling Stones.

'They are rooted in the blues,' McCartney said. 'When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the blues. We had a little more influences.

'There's a lot of differences and I love the Stones, but I'm with you. The Beatles were better.'
In an appearance on Apple Music's The Zane Lowe Show later that month, Mick Jagger touched on the issue, saying he felt McCartney is a 'sweetheart' and that there was 'obviously no competition' between the iconic musical groups.

Jagger also compared the dynamics of the two bands in terms of touring.

'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, or Madison Square Garden with a decent sound system,' Jagger said. 'They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real.'
 
Mick also noted how the Beatles played a concert at New York's Shea Stadium in 1965, while The Rolling Stones 'started stadium gigs in the 1970s and are still doing them now.'

'That's the real big difference between these two bands,' Jagger said. 'One band is unbelievably luckily, still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn't exist.'

The Rolling Stones have recently hit the road once again on their No Filter tou, following the death of the band's drummer Charlie Watts in August.
