Been devouring Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters by Mike Edison...
...which is very funny and a smashing read; author Edison, a drummer himself, really knows the music and the Stones history inside out and it's nice that Charlie is finally getting this level of recognition.
I will say this, however; it's a cliche that members of my generation had an existential choice to make -- Beatles or Stones. And boy, did Edison choose the Stones. I mean, he really fucking hates The Beatles, with the exception of Ringo, and the animus is occasionally a little disconcerting.
In any case, you can and should order the book over at Amazon HERE.
And now, because I love you all more than food, here's one of Charlie's earliest masterpieces (Edison rates it very highly, as well he should).
Jeebus, that's great. I mean, the whole band is, but Charlie makes it sound so damned easy.
