Rolling Stones band member, Keith Richards, slams The Beatles’ iconic album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ saying the band lost their roots.
The 71-year-old who is still rocking, having just finished a US tour, speaks with Esquire Magazine saying, “The Beatles sounded great when they were The Beatles. But there’s not a lot of roots in that music. I think they got carried away.”;
The Beatles 1967 album “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”; is labelled Rolling Stone Magazine’s number one album of all time.
“Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like —”;Oh, if you can make a load of shit, so can we”;,”; Richards says.
Although both bands have denied any sort of rivalry, in 2011 Paul McCartney spoke with The Radio Times on Mick Jagger being jealous of The Beatles pop-song success.
“I could sing, John could sing, George could sing and Ringo did numbers that he could sing. So it wasn’t just the front man and the back-up band,”; McCartney said.
“We were an entity. Mick used to call us the Four-headed Monster.”;
