    Boy Paul is petty, everyone did that in the 60's. Granted Jagger is the last guy to bitch about sounding bad....Still life?"

    Nothing to see here... move along.

    Seriously though, why does Sir Paul even care at this point? Pointless IMHO.

    Exactly, Beatles started out playing Chuck Berry numbers, lots of Buddy Holly influence along the way...
    Stones were a Blues wanna-be, Middy abd Howlin to name a few...
    Why is Paul angry?

    Was not till the Blues Boom that you get Yer Blues and For you Blue. Paul since George and Linda died has become really needy and loves to hype himself as if there is no one to keep him in line,...DUDE YOUR SIR PAUL THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH.

    I think these sorts of things are said offhand in an interview, in a way that’s not that big a deal, and then writers spin them into something dramatic to generate clicks. “Bold accusation,” etc.

    Paul doesn't sound angry. He sounds right.

    I know Lennon said the same things 40 years ago. Not a surprise at all.

    I don't buy the idea that the Beatles weren't great live, they were. Hell even the Let It Be roof top concert is better than most.

    It does seem like he has some inferiority complex. The time he wanted to change the copyright on Yesterday to McCartney/Lennon floored me. Did he really think people won’t remember who wrote and sang it?

    I agree with Sir Paul. Every band copied the Beatles in the '60s.

    He was probably thinking long term, in the history books, etc.

    Yesterday is a song with a strong chance of being known/sung 100 years from now and the L/M order suggests he was a secondary writer, at first glance and to someone without prior knowledge of the band.

    I think what pissed him off is what Mick Jagger said about the Beatles being poor live performers. Nothing could be further from the truth. Paul's right though, the Stones copied them.

    Of course the Stones followed a proven career success path laid by the Beatles to some extent. Why wouldn't they? The Beatles created the template followed by many other bands. But I've never once confused the Stone's image or music with the Beatles. Paul - you need something to do with your time.

    Better than most is right, but the Stones, live in 1969 are not most. Drop that needle on YaYas, Midnight Rambler and that's a live band, playing the blues in a way that IMO is beyond what the Beatles could do (great as they are)

    In my mind, the Stones diverge from the Beatles at the time of Jumpin Jack Flash and become their own deal.

    If this "Stones copied us" theme has be brought up repeatedly, it means that its not apparent to the vast majority of people. This gets stuck in Paul's craw so he keeps forcing the narrative.

    Satisfaction is not a Beatle rip off.
