Well we knew what the outcome would be didn't we!
The Rolling Stones did what they did because of The Beatles, they were given 'I wanna be Your Man' by John and Paul who completed it in a few minutes in the corner of a studio. Seeing them write together like this and so quickly made the Stones have a go at writing for themselves. If The Beatles had kept going and were on the road now the Stones wouldn't have had a look in !!
