    Saw them in '69 and '72.

    R.I.P., Charlie.

    Kind of like Rush without Neil. Charlie was the core foundation of the Stone's sound- stripped down, never fancy, but always rocked the groove.

    I saw them in the 90's on their Vodoo Lounge tour.

    I wasn't born in '69 or '72.

    I thought it both amazing and touching that he was married to the same woman for 57 years...

    Ron Wood said he had a large collection of old cars that he never drove- he'd just put on a matching suit, start them up, and just sit in them and listen to them running.

    Happily, a lot of the stories coming out that Charlie didn't think much of the Rock & Roll lifestyle, and would often depart the scenes of hedonistic excess to go and read a book instead.

    I have had Mother's Little Helper ringing through my head this past week...

    It does have a lot of room to bounce around....
