Someone get Paul McCartney an umbrella because he’s throwing a lot of shade.
The Beatles said that rival British rock group The Rolling Stones was a blues cover band 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,” McCartney, 79, said. I believe our net was wider than theirs.
It’s not the first time he took a dig at the band, either. McCartney said that the Beatles are better than the Stones in a conversation with Howard Stern on April 20, 2020.
“They have their roots in blues. McCartney stated at that time, “When they’re writing stuff, it has got to do with 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.”
The Stones frontman Mick Jagger responded to the comments on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music show weeks later. Jagger, 78, called McCartney a “sweetheart” and said that “there’s obviously no competition” between the two music groups.
Jagger said, “The major difference though is, and kind of seriously is, that the Rolling Stones was a huge concert band other than the Beatles in other decades, when the Beatles never did an arena tour, Madison Square Garden without a decent sound system, or Madison Square Garden.” The touring business was real when the band broke apart before they even started.

The Stones are indeed still on tour, even though Charlie Watts, their longtime drummer, has died in August.
“That’s the real big difference between these two bands,” Jagger added. “One band is unbelievably luckily, still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn’t exist.”
McCartney claimed recently that John Lennon, McCartney’s late bandmate, was the one who split up The Beatles. “I didn’t instigate the split. McCartney said that it was “our Johnny” in a BBC Radio 4 interview, which aired Oct. 24, at 9:24 p.m.

“I’m not the one who initiated the divorce. He replied, “Oh no! No, no!” “John walked into a room one day and said, ‘I am leaving the Beatles.’ Is that instigating the split, or not?”
