|Paul McCartney (Q Magazine)|
During their nineties heyday, Oasis routinely compared themselves to the Beatles and Stones, offering on a weekly basis to get the old codgers in a ring, etc.
Paul McCartney was recently interviewed by Q magazine on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ single “Please Please Me.”
"I'm actually kind of honored -- they could be copying anyone -- even when things happen like Oasis saying, 'We are the next Beatles,’” McCartney said.
“But I also think, 'Listen lads, you can't say that. And don't say that, because it's probably the kiss of death!’ In Oasis' case, I think it was coming from them. In others, it's the record label or management and that's never a good idea -- the poor band! Now go and do better than the Beatles did. Not an easy task."
On that point there is no argument!
