Rolling Stones Drummer Charlie Watts Dead at 80

The world of music has lost another legend.

Charlie Watts, who was the rhythmic backbone to one of the most successful rock bands of all time, passed away peacefully in London today at the age of 80.

It wasn’t until earlier this month that he dropped out of the Rolling Stones current world tour, after recovering from what was called a “successful” surgery.

Watts last show with the Stones was in Miami in August of 2019.
