Earlier this month, Sir Paul McCartney added fuel to fire in the age-old debate. Just who is better out of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones? The 77-year-old appeared on The Howard Stern Show where he naturally backed the Fab Four.

McCartney said: “[The Rolling Stones] are rooted in the blues. When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the 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.”

Now Sir Mick Jagger has hit back in the playful banter, by naturally sticking up for The Rolling Stones.

The 76-year-old was interviewed on Zane Lowe on Apple Music last week.

The frontman was promoting the band’s first new song in eight years, Living in a Ghost Town.

On McCartney’s comments, Jagger said: “That’s so funny. He’s a sweetheart. There’s obviously no competition.”

Jagger argued: “The big difference, though, is – and sort of slightly seriously – 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…Madison Square Garden with a decent sound system.

“They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real.

“So that business started in 1969 and the Beatles never experienced that.

“They did a great gig, and I was there, at Shea stadium.”

The singer added: “They did that stadium gig.

“But The Stones went on, we started doing stadium gigs in the ’70s and [are] still doing them now.

“That’s the real big difference between these two bands.

“One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn’t exist.”

The Rolling Stones’ new song Living in a Ghost Town was adapted from new music the band have been working on into something relevant to the lockdown.

Jagger’s lyrics include: “Life was so beautiful, then we all got locked down. Feel like a ghost, living in a ghost town.”

In a statement on the new song he said: “So the Stones were in the studio recording some new material before the lockdown. And there was one song we thought would resonate through the times that we’re living in right now.

“We’ve worked on it in isolation. And here it is – It’s called Living in a Ghost Town – I hope you like it.”
