Rest in Peace, Charlie Watts, drummer for The Rolling Stones.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... t-1161926/
Charles Robert “Charlie” Watts, the Rolling Stones’ drummer and the band’s irreplaceable heartbeat, has died at age 80. No cause of death was given.

Watts’ publicist confirmed his death in a statement. “It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts,” it read. “He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier [Tuesday] surrounded by his family.” The statement referred to Watts as “one of the greatest drummers of his generation” and closed by requesting that “the privacy of his family, band members, and close friends is respected at this difficult time.”
My oldest friend is a huge huge fan of the Stones. We were talking many years ago and I said something like "Those geezers are way too old to put on a good show". He was so offended he bought me a ticket to see them at the Oakland Coliseum (the football stadium, not the basketball arena) for their "The Bigger Bang" tour in 2006. I had to eat my words, as they were amazing. And that show was over a year into that tour!!! Not a lot of bands have such a deep well of hits, too, let alone hits that are mostly actually pretty good songs. I really appreciated the steadiness and feel and simplicity of Charlie's drumming in particular.

Aw, man. He and Keith Richards together, were the center of the Stones. Little wobbly, but always in the groove. Serving the song, not showboating, I've always loved his no excess style. They can have different drummers, I suppose, but it is quietly as big a deal as losing Mick or Keith. RIP.

Lee "Scratch" Perry died on Sunday at 85. Don Everly died on the 21st at 84. Both are major bummers.

RIP Meat Loaf. A great vocalist and much more. If, for some reason, you've never listened to his Bat Out of Hell album, please do so front to start. Ridiculous and over the top, it is also totally fantastic and a hell of a ride. Amazing singing through it all.

RIP Ronnie Spector

Posting a little late, as she passed away on 12JAN2022, but I feel compelled to mention it anyway. Ronnie Spector and The Ronettes had a huge impact on my compositions, mostly with their finely-crafted backing vocals, but also the mesmerizing vocal melodies and their distinctive rhythm section. I was not merely inspired by the Ronettes; I repeatedly stole from them outright (though not nearly as much as Amy Winehouse stole from them). Ronnie Spector was an enormous talent. "Be My Baby" is an excellent song, but if that's all you've ever heard from the Ronettes then I highly recommend checking out "Baby I Love You", "You Came, You Saw, You Conquered", or really any of their music.

Ronettes you say? Sounds like a fan club for my music. I'll have to check that out.

And rest in peace Ms. Spector.

We just lost Dallas Good of the Sadies at 48. Great Canadian band.
Backed up Neko Case and a bunch of others. They put out some good stuff a few years back with Kurt Vile too. He could pick a surf/rockabilly solo like the best of them. And they toured a lot

I'm not a huge Foo fan but I enjoyed a lot of his interviews etc., on the youtubes. He seemed like both a great drummer and a great guy.
