Keith has said it many times: "No Charlie, no Stones."

When I think of Charlie I think of the Jimmy H song lyric -

"so sing on and play on drummer ... till the end of time "

Charlie Watts .... too cool for school .... rock on buddy !!

That is stunning. I think some of the first efforts I ever made to play along with a fellow drummer friend might well have been to Charlie's work with the Hi-Fi raging - his snare and mine used as a tom-tom. Probably age 12-13 or so. Paint it, Black is in my mind, but it could have been something earlier.
