Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger 'up for jam session with One Direction'

By
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has admitted that he is up for a "jam session" with One Direction.

The singer revealed that the boyband's popularity in America reminds him of his own band's international breakthrough in the '60s.

"I watched a concert of One Direction on 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 really distinctly uncomfortable.

"I remember feeling that same uncomfortable feeling of being pushed around in this very weird place about 50 years ago. It was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we've been through."

He added: "They still want me to come and jam with them. I said, 'Yeah I'll come and play with you anytime'."

The Rolling Stones released their new greatest hits collection GRRR! earlier this week and are currently behind One Direction's second album Take Me Home on the UK and US charts.
