Mick Jagger has responded to Paul McCartney’s recent remark that The Rolling Stones are “a blues cover band.”During the Stones’ concert at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Thursday night, Jagger took a few moments between songs to deliver a comedic list of celebrities allegedly in attendance.”Of course, there are so many celebrities here tonight, you know, naturally,” Jagger said as he stalked the stage. “Megan Fox has arrived.
She’s beautiful. DiCaprio, Leonardo. Gaga, Lady Gaga.” Then he mentioned Kirk Douglas, who died in February 2020, and claimed he “misread that one.” Jagger went on to say, “Paul McCartney has arrived. Later on, he’ll join us for a blues cover.
“Netflix’s support for Dave Chappelle sets a dangerous precedent. Princess Diana:obsession Hollywood’s with Princess Diana will never die, but it’s becoming ridiculous. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, McCartney resurrected the long-running debate over the hierarchy of rival British bands.
“I’m not sure if I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, kind of like the Stones,” McCartney told editor David Remnick. “I believe our net was a little wider than theirs.”This is unlikely to be the last time the two bands spar. During a Rolling Stone interview more than 40 years ago, John Lennon stated that the Stones and the Beatles “are not in the same class, music-wise or power-wise, never were.” Keith Richards told Rolling Stone in 2015 that “Sgt.
Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” which the magazine ranked as the Greatest Album of All Time at the time, was “a mishmash of rubbish.” (Note: Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” is No. 1 on the updated Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. “Sgt. Pepper” is now ranked 24th, trailing the Stones’ “Exile on Main Street,” which is ranked 14th. The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” is ranked fifth on the new list.) Jagger didn’t just go after McCartney on Thursday. Furthermore, he stated, “Governor Newsom has arrived.
You came through the election unscathed. Congratulations on your accomplishment. We’re looking forward to a nice dinner at the French Launderette, or whatever it’s called.
“Newsom’s attendance at a November 6, 2020 dinner at the French Laundry in Yountville, California, during a spike in coronavirus cases in the state, was criticised by political rivals as part of the recall campaign, which Newsom narrowly avoided in September.Jagger made sure the message got out beyond SoFi Stadium by tweeting a video clip of his routine.
