Next month's long-awaited kick-off of the Rolling Stones "No Filter" tour, (which sadly will not be coming to Cleveland), will be minus one of its main players. News is drummer Charlie Watts won't be able to make the trek following an unspecified medical procedure.
The 80-year-old Watts wasn't thrilled by the decision but explained that this is what's best for his health and the band. "For once my timing has been a little off. I am working hard to get fully fit but I have today accepted on the advice of the experts that this will take a while."
Watts will hand over the sticks to understudy Steve Jordan who says, "no one will be happier than me to give up my seat on the drum-riser as soon as Charlie tells me he is good to go."
