The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger Pays Tribute To The Beatles During Live Show
The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger showed his love and respect for the iconic rock band The Beatles in one of their concerts for their ongoing tour. The singer played a well-known song with a special meaning for The Rolling Stones’ members.
‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ initially came out as The Rolling Stones’ single on November 1, 1963, and it became one of their early hits before its success and popularity worldwide. There are many stories about the song’s creation process, but the most known one was approved several times.
Their manager and producer, Andrew Loog Oldham, met John Lennon and Paul McCartney on the street. Then, they wanted to join the band’s recording sessions at De Lane Lea Studio, and The Rolling Stones members were searching for a hit single.
McCartney and Lennon were ready to help, and they finished ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ together while watching them, which McCartney had started working on earlier. It was an unforgettable gift from them, and later, The Beatles shared their second studio album, ‘With the Beatles.’
Decades after that moment, The Rolling Stones performed in Liverpool on June 9 as a part of their Sixty Tour, and Jagger paid tribute to The Beatles before playing the famous track. A fan recorded and shared Jagger’s speech about The Beatles, and the singer said they wanted to play a song from local lads for Liverpool instead of Liverpool FC’s anthem, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone.’
Jagger shared his ideas, saying:
“We decided instead to do a cover of a song written by some other local lads, so we’re doing this, especially for you, Liverpool, OK?”
