The Rolling Stones cover the Beatles in 1965

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 19, 2012

Here are the Rolling Stones touring Ireland in 1965, messing around in what looks like a hotel room, playing a couple of Beatles tunes, I’ve Just Seen a Face and Eight Days a Week.

Jagger at least seems to be taking the piss more than honestly enjoying the music of his fellow British invasion personnel. (via dangerous minds)

Update: From Andy Baio, a reminder that The Stones’ first top 20 single was a cover of The Beatles’ I Wanna Be Your Man.
