R.I.P. Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts

I grew up listening to the Rolling Stones and consider the Stones to be the best and roll band of all-time. Of course, as I aged, so did they. Drummer Charlie Watts delivered for the band and was a major factor in their driving rhythms. He died at age 80, but will be long remembered and appreciated by Stones fans.

You almost never heard his voice and sometimes his drumming was just part of the background. But here are two of my favorite Stones songs where Charlie's drumming made the songs the classics they are.
