The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has died at the age of 80, his publicist has said.
The musician, who marked his 80th birthday in June, had been a member of the rock group since 1963.
Charles Robert Watts was born on June 2 1941 and grew up in Wembley, north-west London.
His parents gave him his first drum kit in 1955, allowing him to play along to his favourite jazz records, which included those by Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker.
By the age of 16, he was drumming in jazz groups and a regular on the London club scene, which was then focused on the parallel worlds of jazz and blues rock.
In 2016, Watts was ranked 12th in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest drummers of all time.
