Did Paul McCartney confuse the sounds of some street fights in Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones?
The former Beetle, in a new interview with The New Yorker, unveiled a long-running debate about which work is the biggest among the British.
Discussing the development and evolution of The Beatles with editor David Remnick, McCartney suggested that he and his bandmates work with a wider musical palette. “I’m not sure I should say that, but they’re a blues cover band,” McCartney told Remnick. “I think our net was a bit wider than them.”
While most would agree that the Beatles were the most successful rock band of all time, The Rolling Stones called themselves the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” in the late 60’s, just before the Beatles dissolved.

The Stones began with cover songs by Bobby Omak (and brother-in-law Shirley Omak) and other writers, including “I’m Yours,” written by John Lennon and McCartney, “It’s All Over Now.”
But by 1965, with songs like “The Last Time” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were writing most of the Stones content.

The Beatles and Stones can’t let that happen
This friendly (?) Relationship between the Beatles and the Stones has been going on for ages. In an interview with Rolling Stone in 1970, Lennon said, “They were never of the same class, music-based or power-based.”
Jacker and McCartney also quarreled a year ago, after McCartney told Howard Stern, “There’s a lot of difference, and I love Stone, but I’m with you. The Beatles were better.”
In response, Jagar said, “It’s very funny,” he said. “He’s a darling. Obviously there’s no competition.”
However, he said on Apple Music’s “The Jane Low Show” that there are differences between the bands. “The Rolling Stones have been a big concert band in other decades and in other areas, while the Beatles haven’t even toured a stadium, Madison Square Garden with a suitable sound system,” he said.
“The real big difference between these two bands. One band is incredibly fortunately still playing in the stadium, and then another band doesn’t exist.
This latest slam from Sir Paul precedes McCartney’s “The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present”, a book published on November 2, which collected lyrics from 154 of his songs, including “Eleanor Rugby” and “Band on the Run”, directed by Peter Jackson. The release of the documentary series “The Beatles: Get Back” is coming to Disney + on November 25, 26 and 27 in three parts.
The Rolling Stones did not comment on McCartney’s recent statement and did not address Jagger and Richards’ Twitter feed.
In an upcoming interview in an October 2 episode of BBC Radio 4’s “This Cultural Life,” McCartney said John Lennon wanted to break up The Beatles, the Associated Press reported. , “He said.” This was our Johnny. “
McCartney made a few words for Lennon in an extensive interview with The New Yorker. Complaints were raised about Lennon arranging “Let It Be” cameras during breakups and highlighting McCartney, and other Beatles were “annoyed by Paul’s classmates.”
Remnick writes that McCartney laughed at it and said. “John talked a lot of bulls ****”
