Charlie

Thank you for the pleasure of listening to your wonderful contribution to the world's greatest rock and roll band for the past fifty years (and hearing you play live 4 times)

May you rest in peace - you will be remembered forever

Thought I was done crying then I saw this:

[www.youtube.com]

These guys have been playing together since they were @#$%& kids. 60 @#$%& years! That just doesn't happen with anyone. Listen, its gonna be a blow when Mick and Keith also pass on, but I think I've always been afraid of this one because Charlie is such the heart and engine of this band and he's the unspoken coolest one still there from the original lineup. Mick and Keith are always out there, Charlie was that unspoken guy that was still there. Its so sad. This intro got me too. Again, these guys are old farts now, but they've been friends for 60 years. There's just something you can't replace there, and now a huge element of that is gone:

Stones have already jumped to place 29 on the top digital artists in the world, people paying tribute to Charlie. More to come of course with Spotify etc today.


RIP

It has been gratifying reading all the various articles on-line coming from a variety of publications paying tribute to Charlie like this one. Really nice to see.

Agree it has been very warming

Place 25 and rising

From the boys over on E Street:

As much as Mick's voice and Keith's guitar, Charlie Watts' snare sound is the Rolling Stones. He's a great example of the kind of power and character a great drummer can bring to his band, deepening not only the physical force of the music, but also the depth of emotion and heart the songwriter gets out of his characters. When Mick sings "It's only rock 'n' roll but I like it," Charlie's in back showing you why!

Bruce Springsteen, May 1991

Oh no! This is terribly shocking. Not just one of greatest drummers in one of the greatest bands of all time, but a gentleman’s gentleman. He singlehandedly brought the Rock world some real class. Rock and Roll will miss him profoundly. We are significantly less without him.

RIP Charlie my darling.

A monumentally sad day learning my personal hero Charlie Watts has died. I'm devastated and my soul aches for Shirley, Serafina, the extended Watts family, and of course his band mates. I don't know what to say really. Charlie Watts Rest In Peace my friend.

For a man known for his keen sense of humor by his friends, it's appropriate his last gig was playing air drums to all of our enjoyment and surprise.

I've been on a road trip with my son driving 4000 miles in the past few weeks and we've literally only been listening to Exile, over and over and over, still fresh after like 50x.. My son said last week "he never plays to fast, if anything it may be a bit slow, but its never too slow....it's Charlie Watts."

So true, so perfect.

Steve Jordan has his work cut out for him, tough gig to fill those shoes, but if the shows happen I'm sure he'll do great, and I'm guessing he has Charlie's blessing, but I just can't imagine them playing Tumbling Dice (or any song) w/out Charlie.

Such a class act, such a sad day.

Rest in Rhythm Charlie, thanks for so many memories that will live on forever.

I wonder if they'll all unite for the funeral, including Mick T., and Bill, who was quite close to Charlie.

..so sad to hear that - simply unbelievable that he's gone sad smiley! We should play Rolling Stones' music loud & clear...

Since I was 5 years old, I enjoyed your music... for 39 years and 30 live shows so far... still rolling smiling smiley! Big thanks to Charlie and the Rolling Stones for so many years of Rock'n Roll dreams, tears & love.

Your music lives forever thumbs up!

And me as well. I'm stil shocked and gutted about this terrible news like most, if not all of us.
It was always a joy to see Charlie having fun on stage and those memories I'll cherish forever.
My thoughts are with his family, bandmates and friends.
Thank you for the music Charlie!

Fine job of assembling all those newspaper front pages, Olaf. Powerful. Did you personally scan them, or more likely, just pull them off the web?

One question for you or anyone -- the Sun quoted an unnamed insider as saying that things took an unexpected turn (for the worse). How reliable is the Sun as a newspaper?

Where to begin...
So sad. So incredibly sad.
Thinking back of all the shows where Charlie brought joy to so many people.
And of the small jazz club gigs I was lucky to attend, seeing Charlie in what compared to a stadium felt like a living room.
Charlie taking the time to chat with some us in attendance. What a true gentleman he was.
Thank you Charlie for all the memories.

Yesterday was a big shock even if I didn't put much stock in the recent PR but today with all the outpouring of tributes and sadness, the realization that it actually is the end of an era is hard to deal with. Can't hold back the tears for this selfless man who "played for Mick and Keith" and for us.

I am in Cancun Mexico on my own, doing the 14 days needed to go on the US Tour 2021 in September, due to the US Covid-19 rules. As I get the news about Charlie passing today, I get so sad. The Rolling Stones are my other family. I spend 25% or more of my life on The Rolling Stones. I used to call myself Charlie when I became a Stones fan exactly 50 years ago this month, back in August 1971, because I used to be a drummer myself, and because Charlie was so cool. Now I realize the last show with Charlie was in Miami August 30, 2019. So sad. So sad.

Yes, so very sad but as was written above you are not alone bv, we are not alone thanks to this great place you created and maintain. You'll never be thanked enough, take heart.

Started on Rock n Roll Circus this morning, peak late 60s

Now on Beggars Banquet and will move through the golden period and onto other highlights.

Farewell Charlie and thanks for keeping the beat.
