The rock band singer also says he would happily have a jam session with the boy band in the future.

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger says he can see similarities between One Direction and themselves back in their heyday, and says he would happily "jam" with the UK boy band one day.

The 'Satisfaction' singer says the way US audiences react to the 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars reminds him of how fans treated them when they arrived stateside back in the sixties, and says it was a "funny moment" for him to notice the similarities despite their different musical styles.

"I watched a concert of One Direction on TV the other night, you know just to check [it] out," Mick revealed to CNN, at the US premiere of the new Rolling Stones film Crossfire Hurricane. "It reminded me very much of our early concerts.

"When we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float," Mick explained. '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," he said.. "it was a very funny moment, because it was very similar to the things we've been through.

"They still want me to come and jam with them. I said, yeah I'l come and play with you anytime," Mick added.
