Keith Richards on the Beatles (2016):
“Our ambition was to be this really hip, cool blues – the best blues band in London. That was the size of the ambition… Until suddenly: boom! Probably the Beatles obviously had a lot to do with this… Without them we would have been totally unacceptable on a mass basis. They opened the door and once that happened the floodgates opened. They surprised us. ‘Cause we thought we were the only guys in the country… And a bunch of guys in Liverpool! Actually they were a vocal group but at the same time another band into rhythm and blues. It was like a revelation to us. And in fact we were a revelation to them.”
