Happy Birthday TO Rolling Stones ' Drummer Charlie Watts, WHO turn 79 today! Watts is the second-oldest Stone; co-founding bassist Bill Wyman is 83, Mick Jagger will turn 77 next month, Keith Richards is 76, and Ron Wood turned 73 yesterday. In April 2017, Watts released his latest Big Band album, called Charlie Watts Meets Danish Radio Big Band. The set was captured back in 2010 in Copenhagen's Concert Hall of Denmark, following only four days of rehearsals between Watts and the musicians. The seven-song album features Big Band's take on such Stones classics AS You can't Always Get What You Want and paint It, Black-along with a Bossa Nova-ting take on satisfaction. Back in early 1962, Watts played in Alexis Korner's Blues incorporate, WHO perform Saturday night residency at London's Ealing Jazz Club. It was there that Stones founder Brian Jones frequently sat in with the band. In April of 1962, Mick Jagger joined the band, but soon decided TO form his own group with Jones and childhood friend Keith Richards, naming their new combo rollin' Stones ' after Muddy Waters Blues classic. In early 1963, Watts joined Jagger, Richards, Jones, Bill Wyman and keyboardist Ian Stewart TO become the original lineup of Rolling Stones. When not playing with the Stones, Watts often works on Jazz-related projects. And in December of 1964, only a few months after the Stones released their debut album, Watts published a book, Ode TO High Flying Bird, tribute to Jazz Legend Charlie Parker. Although literally generations of rock drummers have cited Watts AS influence on their playing, Watts, jazz aficionado, claims not TO really be a fan of rock music. Watts has had the only stable family life of any of the Stones, having remained faithful to his girlfriend and then wife of over 50 years, Shirley, throughout the Stones' career. Watts, WHO was able to resist the lure of hard drugs throughout '60s and '70s, developed brief heroin addiction in the early '80s but soon after found resolve TO kick his demons. Charlie Watts explains the deep musical kinship between himself and Keith Richards is almost like the sixth sense: SOUNDCUE despite all their inner-Band sibling rivalries over years, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards' love and admiration for Charlie Watts has never diminish: SOUNDCUE Ron Wood says that although Charlie Watts loved playing Jazz best of all, he can't hide thrill he Get from drumming FOR Stones: SOUNDCUE Bill Wyman was Always astound At power of Stones' drum sound-especially coming from such small kit.

Aerodrums

On Saturday, April 18, music-listers from around the world participate in Global Citizen and World Health Organizations ' eight-hour live-stream event, One World: Together at Home, to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and celebrate brave people working on the frontlines. Appearing remotely from their individual homes, some artists had lavish setups like Jennifer Lopez, whose backyard looks like the twinkling backdrop of Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade, or her fellow former American Idol judge, Keith Urban, WHO was digitally accompanied by triplet clones of himself. Other performers go with a more lo-fi, strip-down approach. But Rolling Stones ' Charlie Watts managed to steal the show by going Super-lo-fi and Super-strip-down that is, by not actually playing at all. Looking like winner of some international Air-Drumming Championship, venerable Stones rhythm ace surprisingly and effortlessly won the night. Stones were a last-minute addition to Saturdays ' already star-stud lineup, and their rootsy, in-pocket performance of You Cant Always Get What You Want with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and Watts appearing in four Brady Bunch-style split-screen squares was one of the most anticipated and well-receive moments of the broadcast. But it didnt take long for fans to notice that Watts wasnt actually Drumming live. Instead, Watts just coolly sat behind his phantom drum kit, wearing a smirk and several headphones, as he tapped on black box and pretended, rather convincingly, that the armchair to his right was a stack of invisible cymbals. Even without actual physical drums, Watts prove hes one of the best rock n roll Time-keepers of all time, as his attention to detail was downright fascinating to watch. He even elegantly twirls his drumsticks few times, right on cue. Fans may have been confuse, but most of them love Wattss commitment to performance, and they took to Twitter to praise his stellar Air-Drumming skills. One World offers some other comical moments, like when Charlie Puth goes viral for performing in front of his unmade bed, or when Jimmy Fallon and Roots adorably perform Men Without Hats Safety Dance with topical altered lyrics We can Dance, We can Dance, everybody's washing their hands. But most of the events were fittingly somber in tone. Stones fellow legends set that tone. Stevie Wonder pays tribute to his recently departed friend Bill Withers by covering Witherss iconic and appropriate Lean on Me, while Sir Paul McCartney, whose mother was a nurse during World War II, dedicates Lady Madonna to healthcare workers. Sir Elton John keeps proceedings a little more upbeat with Im Still Standing, although he goes viral himself as befuddle tweeters wonder why he was performing on a backyard basketball court. And wonderful Annie Lennox makes her performance Cross-generational tour de force, dueting with her talented daughter Lola Lennox on ethereal Eurythmics classic There Must Be Angel. Rockers appealing to Generation X set also hold their own.

Freedrum

My next stop was Freedrum. Their complete kit lets you strap two sensors to your drumsticks and two to your feet to replicate 12-piece kit. They're compatible with a wide variety of devices and the fact that you don't need a camera or special sticks make this early favorite in my hunt. Technology seems to be exactly what you'd need if you were a venerate musician and want to use your best sticks for virtual global performance. Except. As evidence by Watts little twirls and flourishes, there was nothing, absolutely zero, tech strap for drumsticks. Plus, Freedrum tech requires sensors to be on part of the stick that's actually moving, so they weren't hide in his hands either. So that's two down. Is it time to admit that maybe Watts really was just playing along to recording?
