He was the only member of that band who seemed to be living on this planet.

Wait....are you saying that Keith Richards IS alive? He has looked beyond dead for way too many years. I always thought it was an animated version of Weekend at Bernies.

From what I read today, perhaps the most normal Rock and Roller of all time. Married for 57 or 58 years. Seems like Rock wasn't his first choice, either. More like a way to make money so he could play around with jazz. What is most amazing is how the three of them (Keith, Mick, and Charlie) is how they stuck together for all these years without ego getting in the way and doing "side" projects without destroying the band. I have the utmost respect for those guys for that reason alone (and I'm not really a big Stones fan).

Tribute articles point out his jazz inspired drumming style that other drummers praise as unique and hard to copy.
I will have to re-listen now.
I paid more attention to Ringo than Charlie, my mistake?

He admitted to substance abuse during the 1980s but eventually quit.

Was a good enough “Graphic Designer”
that he did not financially need to do rock and roll,
kinda like Mick had a good job in accounting.

i was amazed Charlie went before Keith ! but as has been already said, Keith is probably an animatron !
one of the two most famous drummers gone now, with Ringo being the other half of the pair still here.
R.I.P. Charlie !

Actually, Mick was quite pissed that Keith's side project, The Expensive Winos did way better than his own solo projects. If you read Keith's autobiography, he writes about it. I think they both realized they are better together and the Stones were the best gig they had going.

i absolutely agree with you about mr. baker. he has extreme talent, however, i'm not quite sure he is as well known in the world's population as is Ringo.
that was my only reference, as the Stones and Beatles are the world's most widely known bands. [i think, but everyone knows my mind is getting up there in cobweb population. biggrin]

I’d often see him coming down the Row, always chauffeur-driven — I always thought it was strange how a man so into cars never learned to drive himself — and his driver always looked impeccable too.”

sample quote

Watts wasn’t formally trained as a jazz drummer, but jazz musicians like Jelly Roll Morton, Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk were early influences.

In a 2012 interview with the New Yorker, he recalled how their records informed his playing style.

“I bought a banjo, and I didn’t like the dots on the neck,” Watts said. “So I took the neck off, and at the same time I heard a drummer called Chico Hamilton, who played with Gerry Mulligan, and I wanted to play like that, with brushes. I didn’t have a snare drum, so I put the banjo head on a stand.”

How about Kenny Aronoff? He's played with MANY bands you can think of... I discovered him while watching John Fogerty perform on the AXS Channel. I noticed that the drummer was doing an absolutely perfect job and thought, "who IS this guy?"

Mick Fleetwood, no slouch himself, paid tribute to Charlie Watts.
