 the rivalry between the Beatles and the Stones is one of the great myths of the skirt. Now there is a new chapter of Paul McCartney. © Provided by www.rollingstone.de Paul McCartney sees the Beatles easily over the Rolling Stones - at least artist the rivalry between the Beatles and the Stones is one of the great myths of rock. Now there is a new chapter of Paul McCartney. Paul McCartney has in a conversation with the "New Yorker" the Rolling Stones a little in the barriers.

When The Beatles released Let It Be in 1970 it marked the end of the band. Shortly after the album and the documentary's release, the Fab Four went their separate ways. Many of the group's disagreements were shown in the film, particularly between Paul McCartney and George Harrison. Recently, Ringo Starr explained he "didn't feel any joy" in the film, while describing it as "miserable".

Ringo added that the film focussed on "one moment between two of the lads" rather than the group as a whole.

Now, in a new interview, the documentary's director Michael Lindsay-Hogg has responded to Ringo's criticisms.

He bluntly replied: "Personally, I don't care. That's his opinion. And we all have them."

Michael added: "I mean, the polite version is everybody's got elbows and everybody's got opinions. I like Ringo. And I don't think he's seen the movie for 50 years." (Via Rolling Stone)

Ringo previously stated: "There was hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the Let It Be film that came out."

He added that there was a "lot of joy" in the original filming.

Michael went on to explain why he believes Ringo to be wrong about his film.

He said: "I think, if you haven't seen the movie in a long time, and you may not have the best memory in the world, all that kind of gets mixed up in your brain about what it was like."

Michael continued: "Because when I saw it last, I'm thinking: 'What is he talking about?' In fact, there's great joy and connection and collaboration, and good times and jokes and affection in Let It Be."

Ringo later criticised the film only showing a few minutes of The Beatles' legendary rooftop concert.

Michael simply said the concert was "magical," before adding: "And they're having such a good time. They realise, wow, we've been missing this.

"And through much of the picture, they're happy and they're trying to work things out."

"So I just don't think [Starr has] seen it for a long time. And again, with respect, I don't care. As a human being, he's wonderfully quick and funny."

Later this year a brand new version of the documentary is being released on Disney Plus.

The new version of the film, now titled Get Back, is being directed by the Lord of the Rings mastermind Peter Jackson.

Spanning over three two-hour episodes, Get Back delves into the previously unused 50+ hours of footage taken when the band were recording Let It Be in 1970.

Ringo has recently confessed he is pleased Peter will show off the happier moments in the recording process.

Paul also added: "I am really happy that Peter has delved into our archives to make a film that shows the truth about the Beatles recording together."
