Bless Charlie. His first Stones gig at the Ealing Club should be reason alone to preserve it! Does anyone know what is happening to it? I heard it was slated for demolition to expand London transit. It’s a terrific small venue, would be a shame to lose it.
Happy 60th Anniversary to Charlie. Forever in our hearts
The Ealing Jazz Club is now a nightclub called ‘The Red Room’ I have no idea what musical tastes it now caters for.
January 11 & 12, 1963: The Rolling Stones perform their last concerts with Tony Chapman, at the Ricky Tick
Club in Windsor and Sandover Hall in Richmond, both in Surrey.
January 14, 1963: Bill Wyman is unavailable as the Rolling Stones perform at the Flamingo Jazz Club in
London, with Ricky Fenson and Carlo Little standing in on bass and drums.
January 15, 1963: After getting Charlie Watts to agree to join the group, he performs with the Rolling Stones,
along with Bill Wyman, for the first time, at the Ealing Jazz Club in London.
Went to the Red Room back in 2018 to see Chris Jagger and his band.
Many familiar faces in the crowd!
