Sir Mick Jagger thinks Harry Styles “just has a superficial resemblance” to his younger self.

The ‘As It Was’ hitmaker has often been compared to the veteran Rolling Stones frontman and although the 78-year-old rocker can see similarities in their looks, he suggested the former One Direction star isn’t a patch on him when it comes to his singing and dancing abilities.

He told Sunday Times Culture magazine: “I like Harry – we have an easy relationship.

“I mean, I used to wear a lot more eye makeup than him. Come on, I was much more androgynous. And he does not have a voice like mine or move on stage like me; he just has a superficial resemblance to my younger self, which is fine – he can not help that. ”

Meanwhile with the Rolling Stones preparing to embark on their ‘Sixty’ tour next month, the ‘Satisfaction’ rocker admitted their high-energy shows have become much more “challenging” now the band are getting older, particularly as they are determined to push themselves as hard as they ever did.

Mick said: “Rock’n’roll, or any kind of pop music honestly, isn’t supposed to be done when you’re in your seventies.

“It was not designed for that. Doing anything high-energy at this age is really pushing it.

“But that makes it even more challenging. So it’s, like, ‘OK, we’ve got to f …… do this right,’ but it’s got to be as full-on as possible.

Of course you could do another type of music – we’ve got lots of ballads. I could sit on a chair.
