“Outside of the band, you know, we used to hang around quite a lot and had interesting times,” Jagger remarked of Watts, who died on Aug. 24, 2021, at 80 from an unidentified illness.
Mick Jagger remembers him on the first anniversary of Charlie Watts’ death.
In a video uploaded across social media platforms on Wednesday, Jagger paid tribute to the late Rolling Stones drummer with a slideshow containing photographs of Watts and soundtracked by the renowned rock band’s 1974 classic “Until the Next Goodbye” and a voiceover message from the singer.
“I mourn Charlie because he had a tremendous sense of humor,” Jagger, 79, said of Watts, who died on Aug. 24, 2021, at 80, after an unidentified illness.
“We used to hang out outside the band and have some wild times. We loved sports. We’d go to football games and cricket matches and have hobbies other than music.”
“But, of course, I miss Charlie very much,” he continued.
