He kept his kit simple. Always did. They weren't a metal band or doing long drum solos.

The Stones have always been about the Glimmer Twins. Charlie was good enough to stay, and must have been good enough for them to want him.

There's a funny scene in Almost Famous where a new manager (Jimmy Fallon) is brought in and says to the band "you have to make what you can, while you can - if you think Mick Jagger will be out there still trying to be a rock star at age 50, you're sadly mistaken" and does it with Moves Like Jagger Starts at 1:00

I never looked at it like that.

I have been a Stones fans for decades, and never thought of any of them as old. Now they are getting old.

The late 80's and early 90's was one of the best times to see them outside of early in the 60's, early 70's.

I still spin the Stones, but I listen to more Classical, and Jazz. Not as much rock anymore. Once in a while.....late 60's, early 70's.

Apparently he was really into jazz and had a side band for it.

I saw the Stones when they were supporting their Tattoo You tour. Can't say I remember much about the show.

Yeah, Charlie Watts and Max Weinberg (Springsteen's longtime drummer) both played jazz between their "regular" jobs. Might explain why both are among the handful of truly great rock drummers, riff monsters but stayed in the pocket, locked in the groove and played for the songs rather than for themselves. Watts' signature sound was slap-happy on the backbeat; Weinberg's was very '80s big-bam-boom and rumbling, most notably on Born in the USA.

It's hard to compare them with a prog rock god like Neil Peart, or Stewart Copeland's world-music beat and flawless technique. Different styles of music. The Stones were mostly basic formulaic rock, not much room for innovation. But when songs like Paint It Black presented a challenge, Charlie was up for it with unforgettable riffs.

Could you imagine Neal Peart playing on "Moonlight Mile" ? Most likely it would suck, and I loved Neal Peart, and I loved Charlie Watts, he and Bill Wyman did a lot of cool stuff 🎸

Dang after watching all the posted videos I’m glad I got some tickets. COTA Circuit Of The America is a formula 500 racetrack it has an amphitheater but for The Rolling Stones they will set up the super stage. Outdoor venue but even Nov 20 will be sweater weather at the coolest. Looking forward to the show and being on a Saturday makes it easy for the group I attend concerts with so no scheduling headaches. Can’t pass this up.

would be cool for them to do an entire album, in order, every night. one night, between the buttons.
the next night, tattoo you. the next, an edited exile on main street. they obvs don't need to as the masses will be
happy with the usual top twenty hits with the odd one or two deep cuts or covers. perhaps a deep cuts show here and there.
one can dream, right?

I recognize their major hits right off. I was listening to them as I was smoking some chicken and having of course a beer required for smoking food. Massive catalog of albums so I would choose compilations to get a feel or a vibe of the Stone’s deeper songs they have written over the years. 50 years of material to digest.

Like Vladimir Nabakov, the Stones can produce work that is so politically incorrect and put it right in your face it defies scandal or cancellation.

Who is "them"?

Aren't all your desired albums available in various formats as well as for downloading and/or copying? No need to dream. Make yourself happy with own playlist in any order you like.

I go to setlistFM and people write in a bands current touring setlist. I make the setlist off Amazon music and listen. I will make one for the Stones tour just to become familiar with the songs. Excited about this concert since it is out of my normal zone but when will icons like The Rolling Stones ever be so near again? Not going go to miss the chance.

Yup. Occasionally there's a PC fuss over Brown Sugar. But nobody ever mentions Stray Cat Blues or Live With Me, arguably far more decadent than Brown Sugar. Sorts out the casual Stones "fans" who only know what they heard on radio, from the diehard fans who know every song in the catalog.

I tended to regard those songs as the equivalent to A Clockwork Orange. Just because Burgess wrote it doesn't mean he approved or encouraged... okay, wait... this is the Stones we're talking about. Okay, yeah. Baaaddd songs. Very bad. I must queue up Get Your Ya-Ya's Out again for my next running session to be sure they're as bad as all that. Which they are.
