The Rolling Stones are a "mediocre pub band" says Roger Daltrey

Oh dear - old rock stars slagging each other off. Roger Daltry has labelled the Rolling Stones a "mediocre pub band".

This is gaining quite a bit of momentum in UK news this morning.

Either Daltrey has another album or book coming out or he's losing it. What's the point in slagging another band off. Quite pathetic really.

The comments were made to new video streaming service Coda Collection but have been picked up several UK newspapers and the N.M.E.

This is from The Daily Mail.


The Who's Roger Daltrey hits out at The Rolling Stones and labels them a 'mediocre pub band'... weeks after Paul McCartney snidely branded the rockers 'a blues cover band'


The Who star Roger Daltrey has hit out at The Rolling Stones, explosively labelling the iconic rockers a 'mediocre pub band'.

The singer, 77, didn't hold back when giving his opinion of the rock group's quality of music, despite the Stones being among the best-selling artists of all time.

Speaking to the Coda Collection, Roger was asked about The Who's contemporaries including the Stones and Led Zeppelin.

His comments come just weeks after fellow music legend Paul McCartney said the group were 'a blues cover band' and insisted his group The Beatles were better, in yet another barbed attack on the rockers.

Discussing frontman Mick Jagger, Roger said: 'You've got to take your hat off to him. He's the number one rock 'n' roll performer.

He then added: 'But as a band, if you were outside a pub and you heard that music coming out of a pub some night, you'd think, "Well, that's a mediocre pub band!"'

The Rolling Stones have sold over 200 million albums and were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1989 and the UK Music Hall Of Fame in 2004.

Despite their commercial success, the group have drawn criticism from others in the past including The Beatles' Sir Paul, who has made a string of explosive comments about the fellow rockers - all peppered with loose compliments.

Speaking to The New Yorker last month, he said: 'I'm not sure I should say it, but they're a blues cover band, that's sort of what the Stones are. I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs', in regard to the two groups.

Following the comments, Mick hit back during a performance at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on 14 October, where he made a responsive dig.

In between songs, Mick took the time to jab Paul over his recent controversial comments while naming many of the famous people in attendance.

The founding member of The Rolling Stones said: 'Paul McCartney is here, he's going to help us, he's going to join us in the blues cover later on.'
Regardless he did go on to name over A-listers in attendance including Megan Fox, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, and California Governor Gavin Newsom who received thunderous boos.

In another interview with Howard Stern last year, Paul said he thought The Beatles were a better band overall. He said: 'They are rooted in the blues. When they are writing stuff, it has to do with the blues. [The Beatles] had a little more influences...

'There's a lot of differences, and I love the Stones, but I'm with you. The Beatles were better. I've always said [The Beatles are better that The Rolling Stones]...

'But the thing is the Stones are a fantastic group. I go to see them every time they come out. They're a great, great band.'

He elaborated on some of the differences between the two iconic British bands and went on to talk about how the band's were great friends despite always trying to one-up each other when it came to new material.

'We still are [friends] and we admire each other,' he said, before adding that he thought their rivalry 'was kind of cool.'

The Beatles have long been regarded the most influential band of all-time, while the Rolling Stones earned the moniker of being the greatest rock 'n' roll band.

Mick was later asked about Paul's comments during an interview with Zane Lowe. He said: 'That's so funny. He's a sweetheart. There's obviously no competition.

'The big difference, though, is and sort of slightly seriously, is that The Rolling Stones is a big concert band in other decades and other areas when The Beatles never even did an arena tour, Madison Square Garden with a decent sound system.

'They broke up before that business started, the touring business for real. One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums, and then the other band doesn't exist.'

Mick also noted how The Beatles played a concert at New York's Shea Stadium in 1965, while The Rolling Stones 'started stadium gigs in the 1970s and are still doing them now.'

He said: 'That's the real big difference between these two bands. One band is unbelievably luckily, still playing in stadiums and then the other band doesn't exist.'

But at their age - approaching 80 fast - I'd expect a little more civility and gratitude that they've all come so far and are still going.

Roger Daltry is an agent provocateur. iirc he has as many offspring as Mick and they both look great for their age. So does Rod Stewart. Yikes, all three have about 8 children. 60s-70s rock n roll must be the fountain of youth and virility.

Pete Townsend double tracked-quadruple tracked his guitar in the recording studio. On stage, it was his one guitar, so the classic The Who live was a thin sound. Too thin for me. While the Stones toured with Stewart and then Nicky Hopkins, took on horn players, filling out their live sound. My guess is that Roger wanted to take additional musicians with them out on tour. But Pete Townsend's towering guitar master mind ego would not allow this. Pete wrote the songs, so got to call the shots. While the Glimmer Twins had more of an equal relationship, with Mick slightly dominant. And of course, split the songwriting credits/income equally,

There's an insecurity that's evident in people that have to shoot others down...it somehow lifts them up.

These (minor) 'attacks' from Daltrey & McCartney are completely unprovoked...you never hear them coming from Mick.

MJ on the other hand goes out of his way to defend, famous example of that is challenging the reporter who slagged Dylan's singing.

Anyway, says a lot I think about these people.

Those two (McCratney & daltrey) must be getting senile making comments like that............It's like saying, Brazil, is a Sunday league team.............just idiotic.

Even if it's 'banter' it's not even intelligently funny......... confused smiley....

The sentence is taken out of it's context, completely. Daltrey has huge respect of this band.

And mr. Daltrey is right in many ways; Rolling Stones is not a band consisting of great mucians; and they can sound terrible at times.
These days, it's all so "straight" , the opening show of 2021 being one example; it is pretty good.

But "back then" - when they didn't give a toss, they sound like the worst band ever to be on a stage; Philadephia 1981, Philadelphia 1978, Cleveland 1978, London 1969, Mûnster 1976, etc etc

First, one has to make the distinction between studio versus live performances. For me, what made/makes the Stones such a great band is their live performances. I have long told people that the Stones are the "Greatest Garage band in the World". It's the rawness and rhythmic power of the live shows that I love the most.

The Who were a very good studio band. The Stones are a phenomenal live band. That’s why I’ve seen The Who twice and I’ve seen the Stones 60 times. Mediocre my ass!

I love The Who and The Stones (and even that "mop top" group too). This is a bunch of nonsense. Roger loves to say controversial things - in the 70s he aimed barbed at Pete himself. Pete is no stranger to controversial statements either.

It is kind of weird though, I'd like to see more civility between these elders of rock - we were blessed to have all three bands "invade" America in the 60s.

At least Mick has been a real Gentleman about the crazy comments - I believe Lennon took a shot too back in '71 or so.
