Charles Robert Watts (2 June 1941 – 24 August 2021) was an English musician who achieved international fame as the drummer of the Rolling Stones from 1963 until his death in 2021. One of the band’s core members, Watts, alongside lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, were the only members of the band to perform on all of their studio albums. Nicknamed “The Wembley Whammer” by Jagger, Watts cited jazz as a major influence on his drumming style.
Aside from his career with the Rolling Stones, Watts toured with his own group, the Charlie Watts Quintet, and appeared in London at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club with the Charlie Watts Tentet.
In 1989, Watts was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 into the UK Music Hall of Fame with the Rolling Stones, although Watts did not attend the former. He is often regarded as one of the greatest drummers of all time.
