Default RIP Charlie Watts

Breaking: Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has died at the age of 80, his publicist has said.

"It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts," a statement said.

"He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family."

It said he was "a cherished husband, father and grandfather" and "one of the greatest drummers of his generation".

The statement added: "We kindly request that the privacy of his family, band members and close friends is respected at this difficult time."

The news comes weeks after it was announced that Watts would miss the band's US tour dates to recover from an unspecified medical procedure. Watts was previously treated for throat cancer in 2004.

He had been a member of the Stones since January 1963, when he joined Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones in their fledgling group.

Seemed to be the gentleman of the band, from what I gather. RIP to a music legend, some of the Stones albums are up there with the best.

Playing for the Stones was nothing more than just a job to Charlie, that was his job. Once he finished a concert, he got paid and went home.
