Rolling Stone Charlie Watts Hits The Big Seven Oh

Today June 2nd, Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts turns 70 years old.  The rocker has spent 48 years of his life with the Stones, which he says comes as a surprise to him.

“I always thought The Rolling Stones would last a year or two because all the bands I’d been in, that’s how long they’d last.  A couple of years is a long time when you’re 18, 19 years old.”

The rocker has enjoyed a stellar career in music, providing the backbone of the Stones’ rhythm section, as well as indulging his love of jazz by forming his own quintet as a side project.

Known for his calm, reserved demeanour onstage, Watts has also enjoyed a largely scandal-free private life, remaining loyal to his wife of 47 years, Shirley.

I bet you didn’t know that Charlie is a lifelong lover of horses, he lives in a rural village in Devon, south west England, where he runs an Arabian horse stud farm with his wife. Rock On Charlie.
