Profile Bio Text
Charles Robert "Charlie" Watts (born 2 June 1941) is an English drummer, best known as a member of the Rolling Stones. He is also the leader of a jazz band, a record producer, commercial artist, and horse breeder.
Charles Robert "Charlie" Watts was born to Charles Watts, a lorry driver for a precursor of British Rail, and his wife Lilian (née Eaves) at University College Hospital, London, and raised (along with his sister Linda) in Kingsbury. He attended Tylers Croft Secondary Modern School from 1952 to 1956; as a schoolboy, he displayed a talent for art, cricket and football.
As a child, Watts lived in Wembley, at 23 Pilgrims Way. Wembley’s houses had been decimated by German bombs during World War II; Charlie Watts and his family lived in a prefabricated home, as did many in the community. Watts's neighbor Dave Green lived next door at 22 Pilgrims Way. Green went on to become a jazz bass player. Green was Watts's childhood friend, and they remain friends today. Green recalls that as boys, "we discovered 78rpm records. Charlie had more records than I did... We used to go to Charlie's bedroom and just get these records out." Watts' earliest records were jazz recordings; he remembers owning 78 RPM records of Jelly Roll Morton, and Charlie Parker. Green recalls that Watts also "had the one with Monk and the Johnny Dodge Trio. Charlie was ahead of me in listening and acquisitions."
