Sir Paul McCartney says Oasis made big mistake with The Beatles comparision.
Macca says Oasis shouldn’t have said they were going to be “bigger than The Beatles”.
The 73-year-old rocker thinks the group made the “biggest mistake” of their career by saying they’d give the ‘Twist and Shout’ hitmakers a run for their money during a controversial interview with MTV over a decade ago.
Speaking to Q Magazine, Paul said:
“Oasis were young, fresh and writing good tunes. I thought the biggest mistake they made was when they said ‘We’re going to be bigger than The Beatles’.”
“I thought ‘So many people have said that, and it’s the kiss of death.’ Be bigger than The Beatles, but don’t say it. The minute you say it, everything you do from then on is going to be looked at in the light of that statement.”
Noel Gallagher admitted:
“I might have been high when I said that. I think I was.”
