Paul McCartney has passed off any rumors that Simon Cowells manufactured X-Factor boyband One Direction compares in any way to (arguably) the most influential band of the 20th century, The Beatles.
On the British morning show Daybreak, Paul said:
“(That’s the) kiss of death. So many bands, they all get called the next Beatles. It puts an awful lot of pressure on them to be the next Beatles. Oasis were the next Beatles once, if you remember. It’s pressure because suddenly you have got to live up to all the things that we did. It was a different time back then. So let’s just call them the next terrific band.”
In out own opinion we agree with Paul and we think its a bit bad to call someone the next (insert great band name here) because all the truly GREAT bands in history were unlike anything that had come before…
Let us know what you think!!
