Macca convinces himself the Stones were jealous

Really, Paul?

"I talked to Keith Richards a couple of years ago, and his take on it was: 'Man, you were lucky, you guys, you had four lead singers,' whereas The Rolling Stones only had one," McCartney told the Radio Times.

"We were an entity. Mick [Jagger] used to call us the four-headed monster. We would show up at places all dressed the same."
So the Stones were not only jealous of Ringo's singing - a bit of a stretch - but the way the Beatles all dressed the same?

Really, Paul? The Stones would rather have been this?
I'm having trouble believing that, Old Man. I'd like to believe it, Paul, really I would.

Have you heard the tapes of the Lennon interview for Rolling Stone just after the split (radio four did a doc on it they keep wheeling out - fascinating stuff). He's viscious in his criticism of the Stones and especially Mick with his "fag dancing". He claims that all they ever did was copy what the Beatles did a few months earlier. He even goes as far as to say "'We Love You' is just 'All You Need Is Love'"
