Talk about high praise! Mick says that he when he sees One Direction perform, it reminds him of when The Rolling Stones were first starting out. Wow!
Mick Jagger, the lead singer of the original British boy band The Rolling Stones, said that when he recently saw One Direction on stage, it “reminded me very much of our early concerts.” How sweet! With his floppy brown hair and penchant for the ladies, Mick is like the original Harry Styles! Read on to see what else Mick had to say.
“I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night… It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float. They were, like, floating above the audience, and they looked like, really distinctly uncomfortable,” Mick told CNN.
Well, both bands do get crazy amounts of female attention! Mick notes a striking amount of similarities between the Stones and 1D, although he is aware that his experiences were from a slightly longer time ago…
Mick says, “I remember feeling that same uncomfortable feeling of being pushed around in this very weird place about 50 years ago. It was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we’ve been through”.
The Rolling Stones may now be over, as Mick reveals his band mate Ronnie Wood wants a piece of the One Direction action — he wants to become the 6th member! Well, if the skinny jeans fit…
Mick finally said that he encouraged the 1D boys not to give up in the early days, as he told them: “I remember them before they made it and I said, ‘Come on, stick with it boys, you can do it’. They still want me to come and jam with them I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll come and play with you anytime.”
