Rolling Stones Drummer, Charlie Watts, Dies Aged 80

A photograph of Charlie Watts smiling while seated behind a drum kit and a picture of a set of drums with a "closed" sign have been shared by his Rolling Stones bandmates by way of a tribute. Charlie Watts, the band’s drummer, died aged 80 in a London hospital on Tuesday, weeks after it was announced he’d miss the Rolling Stones' US tour starting next month to recover from an unspecified medical procedure. Singer Sir Mick Jagger used no words to describe Watts when he posted the photograph of him smiling with his drums on Twitter and Instagram. Neither did guitarist Keith Richards when he shared his picture of a drumkit with no one behind them. They’re just two of the many tributes that have been pouring in for the man who once said: "I don't know what showbiz is and I've never watched MTV. There are people who just play instruments, and I'm pleased to know that I'm one of them."
