These pages are celebrating the music and memories of Charlie Watts, drummer of The Rolling Stones.

From Wikipedia: Charles Robert Watts (2 June 1941 – 24 August 2021) was an English musician who achieved international fame as the drummer of the Rolling Stones from 1963 until his death in 2021. One of the band's core members, Watts, alongside lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, were the only members of the band to perform on all of their studio albums.[1] Nicknamed "The Wembley Whammer" by Jagger, Watts cited jazz as a major influence on his drumming style.
