Paul McCartney reignites rivalry with Rolling Stones insisting The Beatles were better and Stones copied them – The Sun

SIR Paul McCartney has reignited his rivalry with the Rolling Stones, insisting that The Beatles were better.

Macca says the Fab Four were slicker singers.

And he accuses the Stones of imitating his band during the 1960s.

Sir Paul, 77, reckoned: “I love The Stones but The Beatles were better. Their stuff is rooted in the blues. Whereas we had a lot more influences.

“Keith once said to me, ‘You were lucky man. You had four singers in your band. We got one’.”

Macca went on: “We started to notice that whatever we did The Stones sort of did it shortly thereafter.

“We went to America and had huge success and then the Stones went to America. We did Sergeant Pepper and the Stones did a psychedelic album. There was a lot of that.”

But he says there was mutual respect and he’s still close to Mick Jagger, 76, Keith Richards, 76, Ronnie Wood, 72, and Charlie Watts, 78.

He told US radio shock jock Howard Stern: “We admire each other. It did not matter. It was kind of cool.”
