Los Angeles (USA) – Two former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr may appear on the next Rolling Stones album. The American cultural weekly The Variety reported that the musicians had already recorded part of the material in Los Angeles, USA. Although it is not clear what will appear on the final record, the production of the album led by Andrew Watt is approaching the mixing stage.

The last Rolling Stones album to feature only new songs was A Bigger Bang in 2005. Since then, the group has released new work occasionally as singles or as part of greatest hits compilations. He has been working on a new original album for years. Frontman Mick Jagger told the Los Angeles Times in 2021 that they have “a lot of recording done,” and guitarist Keith Richards added to his New Year's wish on Instagram last month by saying “new music is on the way.”

This guitarist won the 2021 Grammy Award as “producer of the year” and has worked with pop stars like Justin Bieber, Post Malone and Britney Spears, as well as rock and metal veterans like Pearl Jam, Iggy Pop and Ozzy Osbourne.

< p>The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, both British bands with roots in R&B, soul and rock'n'roll, went in different directions in their careers. The Beatles successfully chased the title of the most famous band in the world in the 1950s and 1960s, creating a musical cult that lives on today, 53 years after the band broke up and two of its members died. In contrast to the “good” Beatles, the “Stouni” profiled themselves as “the British bad boys” (British naughty boys), which many music magazines titled as “the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world”.

The media more often described the two groups as “rivals” than as “brothers in arms”. McCartney called the Rolling Stones a “blues cover band” in 2021, and a year earlier said the Beatles were better than the Stones. Jagger returned McCartney's note about cover versions later at a concert in Los Angeles. He laughed off McCartney's second statement in an interview with Apple Music, adding that “obviously there's no competition” between the bands. “The Beatles never became a big touring band like the Rolling Stones with proper sound engineering. The concert business didn't really start until the late 1960s,” Jagger added.

Whether the musicians were friends, as McCartney himself said , and their rivalry was just a media sensation, or their relationship was genuinely strained, the fact remains that the Rolling Stones and the Beatles never collaborated much, except for a few songs, such as the hit I Wanna Be Your Man (1963). So far, only the sources of the weekly magazine Variety have informed about their current collaboration, and not one of the band members has confirmed it.
