Famed Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts died in a London hospital on Tuesday, his publicist said.

He was 80.

“It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts,” Bernard Doherty said in a statement to the Press Association.

“He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family. Charlie was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and

also as a member of The Rolling Stones one of the greatest drummers of his generation.”

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

RIP Charlie

Charlie was a grossly underrated drummer. Did exactly what the songs needed…

Glad I got to see him play live in ’95

RIP Mr Watts.
