Keith Richards must be getting bored in his old age and decided to start some beef against his rock n' roll legend counterparts.

In an Aug. 5 interview with Esquire the 71-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist decided to let loose on The Beatles' 1967 psychedelic opus Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

"The Beatles sounded great when they were the Beatles," he said. "But there's not a lot of roots in that music. I think they got carried away. Why not? If you're the Beatles in the Sixties, you just get carried away – you forget what it is you wanted to do. You're starting to do Sgt. Pepper. Some people think it's a genius album, but I think it's a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like Satanic Majesties – 'Oh, if you can make a load of sh*t, so can we.'"

Drake vs. Meek Mills it ain't.

Paul McCartney was probably all like

While Ringo was probably all

Rolling Stone magazine also probably took it a bit personally, since they named Sgt. Pepper the greatest album of all time.

In a 1962 letter to his aunt, Patty, a then-18-year-old Keith Richards described a chance meeting with a guy he knew from primary school, a certain "Mick Jagger."


Anyways the guy on the station, he is called Mick Jagger and all the chicks and the boys meet every Saturday morning in the 'Carousel' some juke-joint well one morning in Jan I was walking past and decided to look him up. Everybody's all over me I get invited to about 10 parties. Beside that Mick is the greatest R&B singer this side of the Atlantic and I don't mean maybe. I play guitar (electric) Chuck style we got us a bass player and drummer and rhythm-guitar and we practice 2 or 3 nights a week. SWINGIN'.

Three months later, The Rolling Stones made their live debut at London's Marquee Club.
