Charlie Watts always looked like he was showing up for the paycheck but never had much fun. Has he ever smiled?
Yes .On his way to the bank . : )
He was a jazz drummer at heart . That said , he had fun ( just didn’t show it ) and was an intergral part of The Stones sound .
A famous anecdote relates that during the mid-1980s, an intoxicated Jagger phoned Watts’s hotel room in the middle of the night asking where “my drummer” was. Watts reportedly got up, shaved, dressed in a suit, put on a tie and freshly shined shoes, descended the stairs and punched Jagger in the face, saying: “Don’t ev...er call me your drummer again. You’re my fucking singer!”
