And it’s possible the Stones could repeat the favor – by playing the song as they perform at London’s Hyde Park BST stage.
They showed it off at Anfield Stadium this month in Liverpool. At the time, Mick said the band “decided… to do a cover song written by other local boys”. It was the first time the band performed the song in a decade.
A source close to Macca said: “It seems like Sir Paul should admit to the amazing fact that they both played on the same weekend. It’s just another matter if both artists are still at the top of the game after all these years. They are all the best of the best. “
Three weeks after the Stones released I Wanna Be Your Man, the song later appeared on the Meet the Beatles album.
The Mirror was the first to reveal that Macca and the Stones would perform on the same night.
Sir Elton John, Adele, the Eagles, Duran Duran and Pearl Jam have all signed up for different nights of the Hyde Park BST shows, which run until July 10.
The Beatles and the Stones have had a healthy rivalry for the past 60 years.
Last year, Macca made headlines when he called the Stones a “blues cover band”. Jagger hit back at a gig saying, “Paul McCartney is here, he’ll join us in a blues cover later.”

This aside, the band members continued to collaborate throughout the years. Lennon and McCartney sang on the Stones’ 1967 song We Love You, and Jagger and Richards joined the live satellite broadcast of All You Need Is Love that same year.
The Beatles released their debut single Love Me Do in October 1962, while The Rolling Stones released their single, Come On, in June 1963.
In a 2015 interview with Esquire magazine, Richards called Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album “a piece of trash” and said there was “not much root” in The Beatles’ music.
