CHARLIE WATTS SPEAKS!
Check out this amazing interview with Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, which appears in the March 2010 issue of Details. Could be the best interview the notoriously press-shy Watts has ever given in 45 years outside of his 1993 chat with Bob Costas.
And can someone please reissue Watts' amazing big band material already? His Charlie Parker tribute album, From One Charlie, is going for buku bucks on Amazon and eBay and I'd really like to get a copy at a reasonable price. Thank you.
Also keep an eye out for the forthcoming deluxe reissue of the Stones' 1972 masterpiece Exile on Main St., due out later this year. -Ed.
