There was a pecking order among musicians in London. The Beatles were the top, then came the Stones. Beneath them were The Who and Moody Blues and all the other bands. It was on the strength of the music, not on record sales. They did work with each other. Jagger and McCartney always planned the release of a new single so they were never fighting each other for the number one spot.
