As anyone who’s read Keith Richards’ autobiography knows, the feud between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones was largely manufactured. In fact, Richards writes of the respect he had for his rival band, as well as some wild times with John Lennon. So it’s not shocking to see this minute-long video of the Stones playing “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “Eight Days a Week” in some downtime during a 1965 tour of Ireland. Sure, they do it with a smirk or two, but you can tell they appreciate the songs, too. The never-before-seen footage comes from a new, expanded version of Charlie is my Darling, Peter Whitehead’s 1966 documentary on that early Irish jaunt. Watch the video below, and read Richard Brody’s recent review of the film at The New Yorker.
