Did You Know?
In the segment where Carly Simon explains who "You're so Vain" is written about, she discusses the possibilities of it being Mick Jaggar. She tells of how she met Mick, and that she also met Paul McCartney. She says that up to that point, Paul had never met Mick (according to Paul). She has to be recalling this story incorrectly. Consider: The Beatles and the Rolling Stones met as early as 1963, watching each other play, as well as appearing on a few shows together. Lennon and McCartney wrote "I Wanna Be Your Man" at the request of the Stones, in 1963, the Stones' first number 1 hit (also recorded by Ringo with the Beatles). Mick sings back up vocals on "All you Need is Love" and is seen on the film of the performance of this song for the "Our World" broadcast in 1967. Mick sat in the dugout at Shea Stadium with other members of the Stones, to watch the Beatles' concert in 1965. No, Paul and Mick had a relationship of some sort for nearly 10 years prior to Carly Simon's story. See more
