CELEBRITY Rivalries

Feuds are surprisingly common in the world of celebrities. From actors who can't stand working together, to rappers who take constant potshots at each other in their songs, there's no doubt that these stars can hold a serious grudge. With that many big egos in a relatively small community, it's bound to happen.

The age-old debate between The Beatles or The Rolling Stones has just been reignited once more, despite the rival British rock bands having hit their old age. Paul McCartney is responsible this time, as he recently said in an interview with The New Yorker, "I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are." Ouch! “I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.”

McCartney had also made some digs in April 2020 with Howard Stern when he again said the Stones were "rooted in the blues," meanwhile "We had a little more influences." He added, "There’s a lot of differences and I love the Stones, but I’m with you. The Beatles were better.” 

Weeks later, Mick Jagger responded to the comments on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music show and said that the real difference 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 clarified, "One band is unbelievably luckily, still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn’t exist."
