Charlie Watts


Charlie Watts, for nearly 60 years the drummer for one of the three greatest rock bands ever, has died at the age of 80. A story from somewhere or the other[Edited and replaced with a more accurate or at least more amusing version]:

As one famous story from the band’s heyday goes, Jagger once phoned Watts’ hotel room in the midst of an all-night party, asking, “Where’s my drummer?” Watts reportedly got up, shaved, dressed in a suit, put on a tie and freshly shined shoes, descended the stairs, and punched Jagger in the face, saying, “Don’t ever call me your drummer again. You’re my fucking singer!”
