Late Rolling Stones Drummer Honored in London
Late Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts was honored by the band at an intimate show held at London jazz club Ronnie Scott’s on Monday, NME reports.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood honored Watts at the show–hosted by former Squeeze keyboardist and TV host Jools Holland–with a performance of R&B standards “Shame Shame Shame” and “Down the Road Apiece.” Former Stones bassist Bill Wyman was also in attendance, as were members of Watts’ family.
Watts died on August 24 at the age of 80. The band will celebrate its 60 year anniversary in 2022.
