Charlie celebrates birthday with surprise appearance

I'm at Tim's gig at the Dakota Jazz Club.

Bernard, Tim and Chuck opened set 2 with Ruby Tuesday and Charlie came on for a guest spot. Just the one song.

I have a cell phone video from up on the mezzanine. Will try and post later when I get WiFi.

BTW I'm Ben, long time follower of the board. I'm going to every show this tour and did all of Australia. I'm looking to meet others on tour. Anyone feel free to contact me.

Charlie arrived just as the show started, and went up the stairs to the only free table there on the balcony. Then he went backstage through the break. He were sitting in on Ruby Tuesday, first song after the break. That song was supposed to close the show, according to Tim Ries, but they played it earlier in the set so that Charlie could sit in.

Charlie did his trademark drumming. Hardly touched his drums, it was jazz, so it was soft and smooth. But as the song ended he beat up the drums like it was the closing of a Stones show. Happy birthday Charlie!

A few questions, if you don't mind.

1. What song did Charlie sit in for?

2. What is the Band billing themselves as? Band 2 or The Rolling Stones Project or with Time Reis or Bernard Fowler and the RSP, I'm a bit confused about that.

3. How was the show and did they play a lot of Stones songs?

Much thanks.

peace

Difficult conditions for amateur photography. Charlie was happy. And I was happy to shake his hand and wish him a happy birthday.

Was an amazing evening yesterday.

Stones songs performed:

You Can't Always Get What You Want (instrumental)
Honky Tonk Women (BF on vocals)
Wild Horses (BF on vocals)
Lady Jane (BF on vocals)
Ruby Tuesday (BF on vocals, CL on keyboards, Charlie Watts on drums!)
Paint It Black (instrumental)
I Can't Get No Satisfaction (BF on vocals)

All Stones songs in were played in a jazzy way, very cool.


Tonight Band 1....smiling smiley

I think you'll find that the answer to that somewhat insulting question is yes.
