Rolling Stones' drummer, Charlie Watts, dead at 80
« on: August 24, 2021, 07:50:01 PM »
Well, it's official - all my favorite drummers are gone. Charlie was great without being the least bit flashy.

Of course, being in back, the drummer is hard to get a good shot of, but when Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are in front of you, not a lot of photographers are aiming your way............and I plead guilty to that.

This may be the only halfway-decent shot I have of him (with Keith) and I took it in 1975 at Madison Square Garden - the first time I shot the Stones (from 10 rows back).

RIP, Charlie.

Sad day, one of my favorite drummers ever, he never got the credit he deserved...many people didn't understand but those songs wouldn't have sounded the same without him
