The Pop Think-In: Charlie Watts

uncredited writer, Melody Maker, 4 February 1967

Charlie Watts has been called "The Silent Stone", who prefers to sit about looking rather mournful and unwilling to communicate. In fact, Charlie has a lot to say, but unlike many people with nothing to say, he doesn't make a noise about it. Given the opportunity, Charlie has a lot of interesting and revealing ideas and facts to communicate — about jazz, America, the Stones and himself. Discover them in Charlie's first Think In.
