Mick took to social media with a moving tribute video dedicated  to the drummer and longtime friend on the anniversary of his death. The video montage highlights Watts and his unbeatable sense of humor — something Jagger admired about him most — paired with the Stones’ track from 1974, “Till The Next Goodbye.”

“I miss Charlie because he had a great sense of humor,” Jagger said. “Outside of the band, you know, we used to hang out quite a lot and have interesting times. We loved sports; we’d go to football, we’d go to cricket games, and we had other interests apart from just music. But, of course, I really miss Charlie so much.”

Watts passed away August 24, 2021 at the age of 80. A statement released by Watts’ publicist, Bernard Doherty, read, "It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts. He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family."

Watts is consistently cited as one of the greatest drummers of all time and played a monumental role as an influence to drummers across a variety of genres. Alongside his Rolling Stones bandmates, Watts was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.
