When asked about the high price of his concert tickets during an interview last week, Sir Paul replied that the price of the Stones tickets were slightly higher than his and added, "Mick doesn't exactly need the money, does he?"
Today, the Rolling Stones were informed of this remark during a New York city press conference held to announce their 40th anniversary world tour. A reporter asked, "Paul McCartney says his tickets are going for less, and the Stones' are more, and why does Mick need the money?" In response, Mick Jagger waved his hand and wrinkled his nose in disgust and appeared to be annoyed. The other Stones gathered around him and postured as though they were getting ready for a fight while Keith Richards replied to the charges saying, "Hey, there's more of us than there are of them!"
