I’m not gonna lie. Charlie Watts’ death has really affected me. He’s part of one of the bands that has provided the essential structure of rock’n’roll. Now that he’s gone, we’re beginning to really understand how close that structure is to finally crumbling.
Imagine what it must be like to be a surviving member of the band and its organization. The Stones will honour the American dates they’ve booked for this fall. But after that? It all depends, I guess.
The Stones posted this tribute to Charlie.
