First of all, thank you for posting, vintagemore 2000! Charlie was and is one of my greatest drumming role models! In the sixties, I emulated his traditional grip just because I thought it was cool. No other reason. I still use it today. Mr. Watts has a way of "playing air" that not too many drummers have. His off beats are fantastic! Charlie knows way more than 4/4. His jazz drumming is extraordinary! Thanks again!
Brian

Charlie is definitely a special rock drummer, but unfortunately, that's all he is. Now i know i'm probably going to get a some flack for saying this, but...He's not a jazz drummer. He listened to jazz drummers because that's all there was at the time of learning his instrument, and knows a few things. He's got great chops, an awesome, unique feel, and has solid timing. His sound has also been a staple in the drumming world for many decades, but he's no technician. The good thing is that at least he admits it. Whenever my band plays some Stones, i always try and play with Charlie's feel, to the point of emulating his traditional grip and "paused in the air, hi-hat stick while he hits the snare" to get his sound. Cool interview and thanks for posting !

Cheers,
Rob

Rob , jazz for years has been and started out by playing with feeling try some fusion that’s the point it’s only gotten sophisticated in the last few decades
