54 years ago, rock history was made in front of a small audience at The Flamingo Club in London.  Charlie Watts got to know Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in 1962 at London’s rhythm and blues clubs. On January 14 1963, he agreed to officially join the Rolling Stones.  Yeah I guess you could say this is a pretty significant moment in all of existence. So today (as John Hiatt would say)  we’re all "bangin’ like Charlie Watts".
