Charlie Watts says it doesn't bother him if the Rolling Stones call it quits

music news 05/03/2018

The Rolling Stones have just announced their 'No Filter' tour and it doesn't look like they'll but calling it quits anytime soon.

There's one person that wouldn't mind if they did though - Stones Drummer, Charlie Watts.

"I love playing the drums, and I love playing with Mick [Jagger] and Keith [Richards] and Ronnie [Wood]," Watts, 76, recently told the Guardian. "I don’t know about the rest of it. It wouldn't bother me if the Rolling Stones said 'That's it – enough.'" 

The Stones 'No Filter' tour will appear across the U.K. and Europe between May and July.

It's more likely that the Rolling Stones would call it quits rather than continue without their longtime drummer. In the past, Richards has said "there couldn't be a Rolling Stones without Charlie Watts."

Watts admitted that he is unsure about what's next. "I don't know what I would do if I stopped," he said. “The big worry for me is being well enough. We don't work like we used to, fortunately. There are huge gaps between each show."

"I would hate it to dissolve not amicably," Watts added. "I would like Mick to say, or me or Keith or whoever, 'I don't want to do it anymore,' for whatever reason, and we just say, 'That's it.' I wouldn't want it to be an argument or whatever."

"For me, I would like to be standing on Sunday, 8 July, at the end of the [tour-closing] show in Warsaw," Watts said. "That's as far as I can see."
