The Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts has said that it wouldn’t “bother” him if the band broke up, also revealing that he doesn’t think David Bowie was a “musical genius”.
“I love playing the drums and I love playing with Mick and Keith and Ronnie, I don’t know about the rest of it,” Watts said. “It wouldn’t bother me if the Rolling Stones said that’s it… enough.”
He continued: “I would hate it to dissolve not amicably. I would like Mick to say, or me or Keith or whoever… I don’t want to do it any more, for whatever reason, and we just say that’s it. I wouldn’t want it to be an argument or whatever.”
“I don’t know what I would do if I stopped,” Watts added. “Keith is a great one for saying once you’re going, keep going. The big worry for me is being well enough. We don’t work like we used to fortunately. There are huge gaps between each show.”
Asked whether the tour would be the band’s last, Watts replied: “For me, I would like to be standing on Sunday 8 July at the end of the show in Warsaw. That’s as far as I can see.”
