Sir Mick Jagger admits it’s “strange” playing without late drummer Charlie Watts

Sir Mick Jagger admits it’s “strange” being on stage without the Stones’ late drummer Charlie Watts.

The seventy-eight-year singer told SiriusXM DJ Howard Stern:

“Every time we get together now and rehearse, we say, ‘Oh, Charlie would say this, then he would do that.’

“We did so many shows with him and so many tours and so many recording sessions, it’s strange being without him.

“When he was sick, he said, ‘You’ve got to just carry on and do this tour. Don’t stop because of me.’

“So, we did.

“Charlie was the heartbeat for the band, and also a very steady personality.

“He was not to be perturbed.

“He was a very reliable person, wasn’t a diva — that’s the last thing you want in a drummer.

“I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humour.

“Outside of the band, we used to hang out quite a lot and have interesting times.

We liked sports, we’d go to football, we’d go to cricket games, and we had other interests apart from music.”

The Rolling Stones are currently touring America.
