    He's such a fucking cool guy

    I like the fact that he's still there, holding it together

    He’s definitely the coolest stone - solid marriage, no serious drug habit and once punched Mick Jagger for referring to him as “my drummer”

    S☼I fatter but also funnier than Vic Reeves

    And he's the only one who doesn't look like Dot Cotton's "after meth" photo.

    He always gets the biggest crowd reaction when the band are introduced at Stones gigs....

    In that book Keith Richard wrote he says at some stadium gig in the states he was playing and he could see on screens the stage and it said above and it was MICK JAGGER and the ROLLING STONES I think that was kinda when they fell out for a while

    He's a fucking ace drummer as well. Musical as fuck.

    He's got a big estate down in Devon. My mate used to live on his land, said he was a lovely bloke.

    So much great stuff going on here, but it's Watts' effortless whip-crack drum fills that really stand out:

    He's a student of jazz, the fella knows how to play. His drumming is so understated, it's so musical you often don't notice it, it colours the song. That's really hard to do.

    And when you listen, really listen, some of it is really hard to play and quite complex. As a drummer I find it more difficult to play like Charlie Watts than someone like say Dave Grohl.

    The same thing applies to Ringo, it's this ongoing fallacy that he's a terrible drummer that if repeated by enough people becomes percieved truth. But the reality is he's great and suits the music perfectly. Musicality. :thumbs:
