Farewell, Charlie

A brief remembrance

This evening we lost someone I was definitely not prepared to say goodbye to. I mean, I knew we were going to be coming to terms with this generation of artists parting ways with us bit by bit (we already have), but I expected to have Mr. Watts around for a while yet.

To that end I thought I’d break this out again. He was an extraordinary talent. He made the Stones what they are. And, for 60 out of his 80 years here, he made it—all of it—look easy.

Heaven’s dress code just got an upgrade. Rest well, sir.
