Charlie Watts

Charlie Watts was a steady backbone of the greatest rock’n’roll band in the entire history of the world. This is a little tribute to him. It consists of a playlist that several Internet sources quote as his best performances with The Rolling Stones. I also mixed in some of the rare things that perhaps better illustrate Charlie’s personal tastes outside of the band as well. Charlie Watts wasn’t just influential. He was inimitable.
