Fans are sharing footage of Charlie Watts’ last ever show with the Rolling Stones on social media, following the news that the legendary drummer has died today aged 80.

News of his death was confirmed in a statement provided to the PA news agency today (August 24).

Watts played in The Rolling Stones from 1963. He was the only member of the legendary British rock band alongside Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to have featured on all of their studio albums to date.

A statement from his spokesperson 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.”

Members of the band showed their support for Watts recently after he pulled out of their upcoming US tour to “rest and recuperate” following a medical procedure.

Watts, who has served in the band since its inception in 1962, joked following the announcement that he would miss the imminent dates that “for once my timing has been a little off”.
