Paul McCartney: A Canadian band could 'out sing' The Beatles - 'We didn't have range ...

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

The legendary band members of The Beatles are still considered experts in the music industry to this day. Paul McCartney and John Lennon's songwriting is still unparalleled to this day, and the blend of their two voices is endlessly iconic. So then it is extraordinary to hear McCartney declare one rock band from the 1990s were vocally better than him and his songwriting pal.McCartney spoke to journalist Ian Halperin where he discussed the state of rock music at the time. He confessed that a lot of the bands around were "a lot more technical" than The Beatles were.

This is a no brainer considering how much music and music production had changed between the Fab Four's final album (1970's Let It Be) and 2008's chart-toppers Kings of Leon. But McCartney's gaze was fixed on the comedic pop-rockers the Barenaked Ladies.
