Often people who listen to heavy metal or prog rock laugh when I say that for what I am concerned Charlie is one of the best drummers ever.
I don't think they should laugh.
Instead they should close their eyes, think of every single Rolling Stones song, imagine it without Charlie' s drumming and tell the trout on that question: would it sound the same?
The only honest answer possile is: no, it would sound sadly different, like a fire without the heat, like a night without the darkness, like life without soul and like Stones without Charlie.
They can take the technically gifted, if they prefer; for sure we choose the feeling gifted. Just like me Watts😉👍

I am a drummer myself since I am 13 years old, have had Bands untill work took to much Over, I agree with that Statement about Charlie Watts feeling for The Musik,
He developed over The years his own style and it fits perfectly to the Sound of The Rolling Stones.
And I just loved it, When Keith Said, Charlie is a supperb Stummer and also a Genius Artist, Jeep going Mr. Watts!!!

The kind of drumming in Prog and Heavy Metal is usually a compensation for something else, like all those old people getting Ferraris.

I agree. That is an unusual photo with Charlie holding his sticks in that position!! His left hand stick is always under the thumb and above the index finger at right angles to the palm.......just saying 😎

As a drummer myself I must say that Charlie is not the most technical drummer, but he's just the only one that can give the songs such a groovy laid back backbeat, just what these songs need. He plays also jazz, but that's not as good as when he play's with the Stones. He has got a great feel. His off hand hi-hat makes his backbeat sounds great every time.
He is one of my heroes!

Charlie is the man ! The best drummers in the world are jazz drummers & country drums because they swing.Heavy Metal & most rock drummers don't have that swing . Charlie Watts is probably one of the most underrated drummers ever , but he's amazing 😎
