Birthday – CHARLIE WATTS (80)
Charles Robert Watts (born 2 June 1941) is an English drummer, best known as a member of the Rolling Stones since 1963.
Originally trained as a graphic artist, he started playing drums in London’s rhythm and blues clubs, where he met Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards. In January 1963, he joined their fledgling group, the Rolling Stones, as drummer, while doubling as designer of their record sleeves and tour stages.
Watts has been the only Rolling Stones member other than Jagger or Richards to have been featured on all of their studio albums.
