Did Paul McCartney Just Diss The Rolling Stones?

There’s always been an imagined rivalry between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. But usually the bands themselves have nothing but nice things to say about each other – usually.

Paul McCartney appeared to throw a little shade towards his rock’n’roll rivals in an interview with The New Yorker, calling them “a blues cover band”.

He said “I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are… I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.”

McCartney’s been in a chatty mood lately – last week, he told the BBC that it was John Lennon, not him, who broke up the Beatles.
