Mick Jagger Compares One Direction To Rolling Stones

(CBS Local) Music differences aside, the Rolling Stones share some similarities with one of today's biggest boy bands and fellow Brits, One Direction. Those are the words straight from Mick Jagger's mouth, at least when it comes to the beginning of the Stones' career.

"I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night, you know just to check [it] out," Jagger told CNN.

"It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float. They were like, floating above the audience, and they looked like, really distinctly uncomfortable." He's not the only Stone with an opinion of the boyband.
