“Charlie was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and also as a member of The Rolling Stones one of the greatest drummers of his generation.” Charlie Watts, who recently pulled out of the Stone’s latest tour, has died at 80. The dapper Watts also designed some of the band’s touring stages. Charlie playing, and chatting about drums.

+ Whenever I think of Charlie Watts, I always recall the John Hiatt lyric from his song Slow Turning. “Now I’m in my car, I got the radio on. And I’m yellin’ at the kids in the back seat ’cause they’re bangin’ like Charlie Watts.” Keep banging, kids.
