The last of my 'heroes' has gone. This shitty world has just got a whole lot worse.

Bit before my time. The Beatles awoke my own interest in pop music.

Curiously, just after you posted this, I was going to comment that, for me, it will be a sad day when The Rolling Stones start to fall off their perches, and blow me if Charlie Watts hsn't gone and died. The beginning of the end of my childhood music!

Charlie Watts was an astonishing jazz drummer.

I had a conversation about him in a studio three days ago and we all agreed how amazing he was.

He never looked like he was doing anything, yet it sounded like two people were playing....

Very sad. My era. I knew a Stone would have to die sometime, but I didn't think we would wait until 2021 for it to happen. :(

I saw an interview many years ago, with The Stones, on the now defunct satellite channel "Bravo". It was from 1968 and the thing that struck me most forcibly was just how damn intelligent they were. Especially Mick Jagger. Coherent, rational, deep thinking and highly articulate, even on the subject of drug taking. Didn't necessarily agree with them, but I'd have found it difficult to present an effective rebuttal to the assertions being made. Compare that to some of the half baked idiots of later and present eras.  

I'd have enjoyed debating with them.

He has changed his mind about Brown Sugar - he has said for quite a number of years that he'd never write a song with those lyrics again. Still a great track though! And this year is the 50th anniv of Sticky Fingers (my favourite Stones album).

I remember as a teenager, in the village I grew up in, peer pressure forced you to choose between Beatles and Stones..........couldn't be both..........a tricky one!

I remember that us kids used to generally prefer one over the other, but there was no hard and fast rule - it was perfectly acceptable to like both!

I'd take issue with him having Jagger and not Richards in his "Big 3" !!
