A nice little recognition indeed. It looks like that the appearance of Sir Mick & Ronnie came as a surprise, not only for us, but for the Jazz FM organization. Don Was's speech ("behalf of The Rolling Stones") sounds like being staged for receiving the award. They probably didn't expect Sir Mick being bothered...

Or could it be that Charlie phoned to Mick and Ronnie that 'c'mons guys, help me out. I need to be there 'couse they are giving me the award, but shit, The Stones are going to get something too, and in that case no way I will stand there alone by myself...'grinning smiley

Even when "Sir Mick" shows up and is insistent that Charlie be the focus of attention and recognition, he still gets trashed. Can't win. Shame on Keith for ditching the gig.

A death in his wife's family must surely be a valid reason for not flying over?

These guys look FANTASTIC!
If one follows them regularly in recent years, then one gets used to the way they look now.

But in comparison, if you look at photos of the ABB tour, they seemed like youngsters then.

Hate to think what changes another dozen years will bring about.

Special congrats to Charlie, and hats off to the Stones' and their blues covers.

The girls' great aunt Hildy died. She insisted you call her "Ant Lady". The funeral coincided with the awards show.

Those liking Charlie Watts interviews, and in the case you haven't seen it, this one is a real gem from 1966. Surprisingly high quality in many ways for the era.

Mick, Ronnie and Charlie probably went there by the tube. At their age they do even get a discount, it's almost for free. You can't take the tube from Connecticut USA so no wonder Keith was not there. Please do not make any speculations here. Keith did his own appearance quite recently by the way, so no worries.

Sometimes I get the feeling they hand out awards to celebrities only in order to make them attend the ceremonies. To raise the status of the event. And the celebrity factor...

Could be Stoneage - I had never heard of Jazz FM prior to these Stones nominations and had to look it up.

Jazz FM (UK)

Chatoyancy, I've been greatly enjoying the nuggets you've been sharing lately. While the lady's passing is sad news, I love "Ant Lady" for a Great Aunt. Ditto the info on Jason Nesmith you recently shared. I remember Nancy Boy, a wonderfully cheeky politically incorrect name for a band. Not that Jimmy Jagger knows anything about that.

I've been meaning to ask you about your friend Lin aka Touch. I'm curious if "Losing My Touch" was a reference to her. I had a friend tell me "Touch" was a reference to "Chuch" but I suspected that was retroactive guessing since Chuch Magee passed away after the song was cut but before it was released.

I also wondered if the decision to cover Ray Sharpe's "Linda Lu" was an opportunity to reference both your friend Lin and Patti Hansen via the lyric, "I call my baby Patty, but her real name is Linda Lu."

Remember when Mick, Charlie and Ronnie did this great interview sans Keith --almost 40 years ago.

Who would have thought....

Keith lives with his family in Connecticut, its a 20 hour round trip to London and back, no shame in Keith not being there at his age, i'm sure of he was in London he would have attended.
Presumably Keith is the only one working on the new album.
