One Direction reminds of Rolling Stones: Jagger
IANS [ Mon, Nov 19, 2012 ]
- Los Angeles, Nov 20 (IANS) Singer Mick Jagger says watching the band One Direction reminds him of his younger days with his own band Rolling Stones.
Jagger, 69 says his band, which consists of Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts besides him, was treated in a similar fashion the way British band One Direction is treated now days.
One Direction is a five-member band consisting of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik.
"I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night. It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float. They were, like, floating above the audience, and they looked like, really distinctly uncomfortable," CNN quoted him as saying.
"I remember feeling that same uncomfortable feeling of being pushed around in this very weird place about 50 years ago. It was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we've been through," he added.
