“I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs,” McCartney says in new interview

‘Silence of the Lambs’: ‘It Broke All the Rules’
“They are rooted in the blues. When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the blues. Whereas we had a little more influences,” he told Stern. He added: “There’s a lot of differences, and I love the Stones, but I’m with you. The Beatles were better.”
Mick Jagger responded
to McCartney’s comments to Stern shortly afterward in an interview with Zane Lowe during his Apple Music show. “That’s so funny,” he said, laughing. “He’s a sweetheart. There’s obviously no competition.”
Jagger also elaborated on the primary difference between the two. “The Rolling Stones have been a big concert band in other decades and other eras when the Beatles never even did an arena tour.”
“They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real didn’t start until the end of the Sixties…That’s the real big difference between these two bands.

One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums and the other band doesn’t exist.”
In an upcoming interview slated to air on BBC Radio 4 later this month, McCartney discussed the Beatles breakup and said he personally was not the cause of their demise, but rather it stemmed from John Lennon.
“I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny,”
. “I am not the person who instigated the split. Oh no, no, no. John walked into a room one day and said, ‘I am leaving the Beatles.’ Is that instigating the split, or not?”
