Paul McCartney alleges Rolling Stones copied The Beatles
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.
