    Rest In Peace, Charlie.

    My last live show with Charlie & the Stones was the Bridges to Babylon tour..... about 30 years ago...

    Sad news. R.I.P. Charlie.
    A fellow Gretsch man too.

    What a great life and what a great contribution to Rock 'n Roll.

    He was reluctantly recruited and remained loyal to the end. His role cannot be over stated when considering the longevity of the group IMO.

    So sad.... This hurts, as there was no other nicer drummer around. I saw The Stones in Charlottesville, at UVA Stadium (Univ of Virginia football stadium) back in Oct 2005. We were in the upper deck, and The Stones looked like ants. Thank God for those big Diamond Vision screens!

    That’s too bad. Just thinking how ironic that Charlie was the first to go…they sure try to tell us that they know what’s up but every year that passes shows how little we know.
