Paul McCartney: Rolling Stones are a "blues cover band"

Shots fired! Shots fired!

There's always been a rivalry between the English megabands. Former Beatle Paul McCartney added some more fuel to the fire on on Monday when he said this to the New Yorker:

“I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are,” he told me. “I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.”


Who's side are you taking in this, DUers? The Stones or the Beatles?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely is a war breaking out between Taiwan and China?

One being least likely, 10 being full-scale combat.


Taiwan is preparing for potential war with China following a series of increasingly aggressive military activity from Beijing, with Taipei’s foreign minister warning that should the nation attack, it would “suffer tremendously.”

China on Monday sent 52 military aircraft into Taiwan’s airspace, the largest military provocation seen yet. In anticipation of further aggression, the self-ruled island is preparing to repel any strike and has asked Australia to increase intelligence sharing and security cooperation, Taiwanese Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told the Australian Broadcast Corporation's "China Tonight."

“The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that,” Wu told ABC's Stan Grant in an interview to be broadcast Monday.

“I’m sure that if China is going to launch an attack against Taiwan, I think they are going to suffer tremendously as well.”
