Charlie Watts, the Rolling Stone's long-time drummer and lover of all things jazz, passed away this week.

He was 80-years-old.

Watts, who celebrated his 80th birthday in June, joined the Rolling Stones in 1963.

He had grown up in Wembley, north London, and met fellow Stone, Mick Jagger, as a teenager.
