Rolling Stones Drummer Charlie Watts Dies At Age 80


Charlie Watts, The Rolling Stones' only drummer for nearly 6 decades, died Monday in London.

"It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts," a statement said.

"He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family."

It said he was "a cherished husband, father, and grandfather" and "one of the greatest drummers of his generation".

The news comes weeks after it was announced that Watts would miss the band's US tour dates to recover from an unspecified medical procedure. Watts was previously treated for throat cancer in 2004.
