We are sad to report on the passing of Charlie Watts, drummer for one of the biggest bands in the history of rock and roll, the Rolling Stones.

The band had recently broken the news that Watts would not be on the upcoming US tour dates, due to a medical procedure. The band have announced that Steve Jordan will be behind the drum kit on these dates.

Testimonials are pouring in from fans and rock stars alike. This sentiment is from Nick Mason, drummer for Pink Floyd, one of the few bands that could rival the Stones for their popularity and longevity.
