Paul McCartney alleges Rolling Stones copied The Beatles
Los Angeles: Musician Paul McCartney has accused The Rolling Stones of climbing the ladder of success by copying The Beatles.
One of the Rolling Stones` earliest singles, ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’, was written by McCartney and John Lennon, and the band broke America a year after the Fab Four.
MCCartney also gave an example of Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards` wizard outfits in 1967 album ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request’ as proof of their Beatles imitation, reports contactmusic.com.
"That is the truth. Look at the history: The Beatles go to America, a year later they come too. We wrote their first single (sic), I Wanna Be Your Man. We go psychedelic, they go psychedelic. We dress as wizards, they dress as wizards,” said McCartney.
