Born on this day in 1941, Mr Charlie Watts..!

Happy birthday Charlie.

“In addition to a decent day job as a graphic artist in an advertising agency, Charlie Watts was already drumming in a budding London band, Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, when the nascent Rolling Stones asked him to join them. They’d admired his jazz-honed skills on the skins for a while, but weren’t able to afford him until then.”
