Rock, pop, jazz, and R&B music would sound pretty limp without a drum beat. That's why drummers are often one of the most popular members of the band. But who's the best drummer out there, the supremo on the skins, the one who hits hardest and fastest?
Sadly, one of the greats has passed away. Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts died on August 24 at the age of 80. Although the cause of death was not made public, a statement from the family read: “He passed away peacefully in a London hospital surrounded by his family." Watts had been a member of the Stones since the beginning of 1963 and helped the group become one of the greatest bands in rock 'n' roll history.
