So long to the mighty Charlie Watts, whose elegant, uncluttered style was as essential to the Rolling Stones’ sound as Keith Richards’ more lauded guitar work.

Bliss out to his joyous interplay with Mick Jagger during the coda to “Tumbling Dice,” live in Brussels, 1973. Don’t you see the time flashin’ by? | t wilcox
