A tribute from many forty plus daters on Older Dating Online to Charlie Watts
Everyone who is a forty plus single on Older Dating Online will have lived through the era of the Stones mania and will know and love Charlie Watts. To me he was always the most glamorous of The Stones group and his calm dedicated manner, in which he played his drums was the backbone to the Stones while Mick Jagger was the showman.
I always felt that because he was so calm and stylish, he was the most eye catching. Many forty plus daters on Older Dating Online will feel the sadness of his passing.
Known for his manner of stylish dressing and the way he dressed with such grace and aplomb, that is very difficult to copy he will go down in history as being one of the best dressed men. Even at eighty he looked well turned out and cut a fine figure.
Many forty plus daters on Older Dating Online will morn his passing. His jazz swing to playing the drums made him stand out as one of the greats.
He was always one of the quieter members of The Stones and spent much time in his hotel room when the band was on tour. He used to draw each room and it makes me wonder what he was thinking about as he sat in his room drawing. Was he thinking about his drumming and was he rehearsing in his mind or did he know each beat so well that he just needed the alone time to recharge his mind after the riggers of a band on tour? It seems strange that such a seemingly introverted man was part of such an outgoing extroverted band.
I think because he was so calm and controlled, he attracted even more attention than those members who were cavorting around the stage in a showman like way. Certainly, the world has expressed sorrow at his passing.
Charlie Watts had surgery to remove a tumor in his throat but that was heralded as a complete success and he was believed to have passed away peacefully of old age with family and friends around him. A sad passing but a life well lived and a tribute from all those Stones fans who grew up listening and admiring him from a distance. Farewell to a master craftsman of his drumming talent.
