Charlie Watts, drummer of the Rolling Stones has died, aged 80. As the news of his passing circulates throughout the music world, his peers and fans have taken to social media to pay tribute.

While the band themselves are (understandably) yet to comment personally, Steve Jordan, who was due to fill-in for Charlie on the Stones' upcoming No Filter US tour led the tributes, writing, “With all my love and admiration..." He will always be a giant...he will always be a friend...... from one Jazz lover to another...... we will see each other again.
