Charlie Watts: Incredible life story of quiet Rolling Stone and ‘true British eccentric’
The Mirror says: The Rolling Stones had been going for a year in January 1963 when drummer Charlie Watts played with them for the first time. He is held in such high regard by his band-mates that they class that night as the real beginning.
It was the official birth of the world’s greatest rock’n’roll band. Or as he said, the start of “decades of seeing Mick’s bum running around in front of me”.
After that night in the smoke-filled Ealing Blues Club in London, when Charlie, at the second time of asking, picked up his drumsticks for the fledgling band, that their climb to stratospheric levels of fame began.
Months later, they had their first hit single. Within two years, they had conquered America, causing riots as they landed after their first No1 there with (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.
