First the long time drummer for the Rolling Stones said that said that it wouldn’t “bother” him if the band broke up.
The band announced some dates for a UK and Ireland tour this week – their first there in five years. In an interview with The Guardian he said “I love playing the drums and I love playing with Mick and Keith and Ronnie, I don’t know about the rest of it, It wouldn’t bother me if the Rolling Stones said that’s it… enough.”
Watts in 76 now and says he would want the split to come with the Stones without too much drama plus he added they don’t work the way they used to – he’s concerned about doing a good job.
And the death of Bowie, Watts says he was surprised that so many music fans went nuts, “I thought people would have been very sad obviously, and he was a lovely guy and he wrote a couple of good songs, But for me, he wasn’t this musical genius.”
