Ugh. Such sad news, from the BBC:
Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, who helped them become one of the greatest bands in rock ‘n’ roll, has died at the age of 80.
“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”.
He was one of the greatest drummers of all time, IMO.
Rest In Peace, Charlie. 🖤
