Charlie Watts is one of the most important drummers in Rock and Roll History. Mike Edison is the author of "Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters" and he gives us a great in depth look at the importance of Charlie and the Rolling Stones on popular culture.

Learn about the impact Charlie made on pop culture with The Rolling Stones and as a passionate jazz drummer.
