Rod Stewart

F**k the Beatles

1/8/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rod Stewart is forever bitter about one of his contemporaries -- maybe the only one that outshined him ... The Beatles ... because he says he "COULDN'T GIVE A F**K" about a Beatles-ish reunion.

It's a little hard to hear the photog because another pap is talking over him.  But he asks Rod what he thinks of the Beatles getting back together.

Obviously, the photog is a little behind on not-so-current events ... but Paul and Ringo might perform together on 'Letterman' next month to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles Ed Sullivan debut.

Unclear why Rod has beef.  He's outlived half the group.

Show some respect! It's nice of that young woman to escort her senile grandpa out for a dinner of mashed potatoes and creamed corn.

Saw Rod a few weeks ago in Montreal. He put on an amazing show and had the audience on their feet singing all his hits. He also introduced and sang with his daughter Ruby and his other very talented musicians. He also told little interesting stories and was charming and very likeable. At the end, he threw signed soccer balls into the audience. Sadly, I didn't get one. The guy put on an amazing and energetic show. I went to Bon Jovi last year and never again. The kept playing and promoting their new music and everyone was falling asleep. Jon kept apologizing and saying to be patient with their new music. Hardly heard any of their old hits. Never again! Sorry!

Went to Rods' show here in Montreal a few weeks ago. The guy is a legend and put on the best show I've been to in recent years. Introduced and sang with his daughter Ruby as well as other musicians. The whole audience was on its feet singing along to all his hits and he even threw signed soccer balls at the end of the show. I didn't get one though :( Went to Bon Jovi and sorry, but they sucked.

How many people under the age of 40 listen to Rod, now how many people under the age listen to the Beatles? Exactly.

He's just pissed because the Beatles could sing and he can't;-) Doesn't matter; people like his voice and his songs, and he's rich and famous.

I'm with Rod. I ****ing hate the Beatles too. Most overrated band in pop music history. They had no talent. They were scouted and pieced together by a management team. Their music, but for 1 or 2 songs is mind numbing repetitive nursery rhyme garbage. They were a bunch of redcoat drughead losers sent here to Amurica to brainwash the kiddies into the "new age." The only decent thing to come out of the Beatles was true rebel John Lennon.

The Beatles were/are much better than Rod ever was or will be. Rod would still be digging graves for a living if it weren't for The Beatles. The same is true for many others who came on the scene at the same time. They all rode The Beatles coattails. Maybe Rod feels some sort of misguided loyalty to Ron Wood of The Rolling Stones? The Stones and The Beatles were always frenemies.
